Unhappy Urgent

Hello folks, I'll try and be brief. This last Sunday (10/2) We picked up a Boxer puppy, 10 weeks old from a breeder. It took about 5 hours to get him home, whole car trip he was fine. Lazy but took the ride well, about an hour from home he puked, we were not worried as he had been in the car most of the day. Over the next 24 hours (10/3) he became worse, very lethargic, continued to vomit with diarrhea. He lost appetite but would drink water. We took him to the vet and ruled out Parvo, than ran other tests but nothing came back concrete, we were sent off with antibiotics and told to hope for the best. Over the course of today (10/4) the situation has became much much worse, He's in obvious pain, wont or cant move, won't drink or eat and Crys out every few minutes. We are extremely worried but don't want to get caught with a extremely high vet bill trying to figure this all out. Any Information would be so appreciated

Not eating or drinking, and not moving, I would go back to the vet. They may need to keep him in their care for monitoring.

I would absolutely get him back to the vet. I would also contact the breeder. A reputable breeder would want to know about this. I'm not an expert on the law in these situations but I would try to get them to pay for all or some of the vet bills. Good luck!

I agree that he needs to be seen by the vet again, and the breeder should be informed. It's hard to say what it could be. Did he have x-rays to rule out any sort of obstruction?

I echo the well wishes. However, requests for compensation are premature, we do not know whether something occurred in the car ride home, overheating,etc. which would not be the fault of the breeder.

I also think a return trip to the vet, as soon as possible, is warranted.

@Lucille - as I said before that comment... I would contact the breeder and discuss with them. The OP was concerned about vet bills and my comment was to encourage them to explore the option that the breeder MAY pay for some of them.

Thank you all for the responses and well wishes, we contacted the vet and followed their instructions... unfortunately he passed away early this morning, We still don't know what caused it. There is a lot of sadness, anger, and confusion currently.

I'm SO sorry!! Is the vet going to perform any testing to determine a cause of death?
