Maybe the pup doesn't need to go to the vet. Some people would go the vet every day if they could. Medicate every day and wear down the pups natural defenses. This guys parents know best. Every day now will be a different issue.
Cute pup though. I would be worrying about it poopin all over the place more than anything else. Pups should be in the yard at that age.

Didn't you say you had money saved up? You've said before that you had quite a bit of money saved up and would pay for vet costs if needed, so why does it matter to your mom if you are the one paying the vet bill?
This is the reason 99% of the people in your past threads said you needed to wait - You and your parents won't agree on things to do with the puppy, and you aren't the one that's going to win those disagreements.

Say if she is straining and something like string or fabric comes out do not pull on it. She needs to push it out. I do hope she is ok. Keep notes of when she eats and drinks and how much and when she goes to the bathroom etc. If you have a phone take a picture to save if a vet does need to see it.
I agree on pulling everything out of her crate she could chew up. Pups are very bed at chewing on towels etc.
So sorry it is going rough with your parents.

I'm sorry your parents aren't as concerned as they should be when it comes to your puppies health
I know it's really tough for a kid who relies on their parents for 'everything'..I just hope Lela won't pay for your parents lack of medical expertise.
For now, do not leave her unattended, she could eat, chew up all kinds of things, end up with a blockage which is life threatening and quite a painful way to die. I'm not trying to scare you, it's just the facts of having a puppy that can get into all kinds of stuff when no one is watching their every move, especially ones that are big time chewers or just eat "stuff"..
If she continues to throw up her food, has diarhea,or tries to and can't poop, she needs to go to a vet...

|GSDLover2000||Thank you for all the responses. Sadly, I didn't and won't be taking her to the vet. I want to badly because I don't want her in pain and me not doing anything about it, but my parents think she is fine. My mom says that it will cost money, and she is fine. I had to beg my brother to call the vet because my mother wouldn't. She is better than she was last night, but there was mild gagging an hour or so ago. She is sleeping right now, but I am worried for her. I am going to have to stick it out until October 19th when she goes to the vet for an overall check and second set of parvo shots. Also, I don't know if this is good, bad, or doesn't matter, but her poop is very soft and thin. I am trying really hard to make her comfortable, but I can tell she is scared. My other dogs don't like her, she is away from her family, in a new place with brand new things, and might be in pain... I can't imagine how she feels. I am praying she will be fine until the vet appointment, but I just wish my family loved animals as much as I do. I really do thank you for the advice, I didn't show my mother the replies because I just read them all today, but I read her articles about treated wood, which Lela ate, and told her what the vet said, told her how Lela was gagging, whining, and whimpering, but according to her, "She is fine". Well, Lela seems better now, but I just hope that because we didn't go the vet she is going to be ill. I am trying so hard to give her the best life, I know it has been 2 days, but so far I am not doing so hot.|

|arycrest||I have to "assume" the puppy is doing okay since he posted pictures of her this morning on another thread (or at least I sure hope she's okay).|
