Only given him water.

Our Advice:

Thank you for your email. Most cases of gastroenteritis (upset tummy) settle down within about 48 hours. As Trev is no better and is now starting to vomit I would recommend you make an appointment for him to see your local vet. If he’s not been vaccinated in the past year please let the receptionist know when booking the appointment, as vomiting and diarrhea can be symptoms of the highly contagious virus parvo.
