i have a 6 month old pitbull. she is usually very active, playful and happy. Yesterday and today she has been very tired, run down, vomiting and today had diarrhea twice. I noticed white maggot like stuff in her feces. I bought wormer. Gave her the treatment.
I cleaned the area very well where she goes to the bathroom. I then noticed maggot like worms moving, i put cleaner down again let it soak and rinsed. I see nothing now. I think she seems like she is in pain. Her vomit is clear, yellow, and this last one had a brown look in it. Her diarrhea is watery. Please help me. I rescued this little sweetie and I love her
Your puppy needs to be seen by a veterinarian right away as it sounds as though she has a severe worm infestation.
Over the counter dewormers aren't generally very effective, and can have dangerous side effects. You need your vet to take a stool sample to test for the specific worms she has and to treat accordingly.
The dark colored vomit could mean that she is bleeding in her digestive tract and that's not good. Please get her to your vet right away. She's depending on you to help her, so don't let her down.
Best of luck, hope she's doing much better soon.
