I'm not a vet...but take your puppy to the vet ASAP....as this could be a very dangerous illness called Parvovirus. A few weeks after we gor our puppy, she became very ill with this virus and almost died. If it's parvo, your vet can help, but you need to get him there fast, in order to start treatment as quickly as possible....Parvovirus infection is often fatal..and the risk of dehydration as a secondary potential problem, is far too great to wait. As I said...I'm not a vet...but I am a Registered Nurse, and worked at a vet hospital to pay my way through school. Good Luck!
