Sick 6week old shih tzu puppy

Hope someone could help me. I was given a 5week old puppy which wasnt breast feeding much with his mother. So he is a skinny shih tzu. I brought him to the vet who advised to feed the puppy royal canine recovery food at vitamins after checking and removing tiks. The pup was energetic at first after a week he starting puking water. No food. Only clear liquid like saliva. And hasnt peed for 12-16hrs. Brought again to the vet but vet is not sure on what the problem is. The only advise given was trial and error method with the water. Tried to feed the puppy foster milk and finally peed alot. But puking of liquid saliva continued but on a smaller amount. He is not yet vaccinated due to his condition. On his 1st check he was 600grams. 2nd check when he started puking he dropped to 350. Anu ideas whats wrong with the puppy? He is 6weeks now and after feeding the foster milk he doesnt want to eat the canned food anymore. Only the milk.

I am going to close this thread as the internet is truly not the place to be getting advice for your puppy. You need to speak with your vet. If the vet is not giving you enough information or insight I recommend getting a second opinion. At that age (way too young to be away from it's mother and siblings) a prolonged time without eating, drinking, or peeing can lead to developmental issues. The only person who can help you with this is a vet who has seen and treated you puppy. Good Luck.
