Exercising puppy not eating
My 7mo old shih tzu and I have started walking 5km a day.  We started this routine just over a week ago and she has been very energetic on all of the walks.  This morning when we got back home she did not drink any water or eat her food.  This evening she is still not eating and it looks like she was eating grass and threw up during the day.
To complicate matters I gave her a new brand of deworming tablet last night and she also had a good part of a bone after dinner.  
Could this just be from too much exercise too quick or should I take her to the vet ASAP?  Any other suggestions of what could of caused this?  
Cheers Betty's mom!

Hi Bettyboo's mom...This could be a combination of things....First, If I"m calculating correctly, this would be a 3 mile walk each day.....I personally think that's way too much for a Shih Tzu at any age!

Next, what was the weather like?  Could be heat exhaustion!

The wormer: Is it Vet prescribed? OTC counter ones are dangerous, usually don't work, and are not worth the risk of toxicity......

The Bone: If it was a cooked bone, then yes there is risk of puncture or blockage....Raw bones are normally safe! So, that comes into play...

These are just some of the ideas that went through my head.....I hope she is better by now, but if not, I WOULD take her to the Vet ASAP.....Please let us know how she's doing & good luck, Karla
