wolfie13 Update for today. Another vet visit. Confirmed to be a nasty infestation of tapeworms. The particular dewormer they used before doesn't affect tapeworms. Got him his pill and he took it about an hour ago. Hopefully in 2-3 days he will be finally good and healthy.

I already did do them. I was told that he only had his first set of shots. And that was back in May, So, I think he needed a booster shot regardless.

bitoy Can you give symptoms of over vaccination? When my pup was vaccinated at six weeks he started to shake uncontrollably the day after. Vet did not give vaccine at eight weeks. But had him deformed twice (2 week interval). Pup still gets the fit. She doesn't vomit nor has loose stool, and she still wants to play whenever we are around. I'm beginning to think that vaccinations at a young age is not really a good idea.

it sounds like your puppy has gotten a bad start in life and as soon as he is determined able to be vaccinated
that is over the worms incident
you should do the minimal vaccines which is 2-3 given 2-3 weeks apart

it sounds like the pup needs to go back in anyway and the sooner the better
he already had his vaccinations. he had to have them as I didn't the previous owner, I am scared of over-vaccination as well. But its better for peace of mind, I guess.

Honestly, I wish that it was easier to tell if they were vaccinated or not.

wolfie13 I came back from the vet and I couldn't do the fecal. he was dehydrated so they gave him something for that.

They also told me to feed him chicken and rice to get his digestive system going.

To the post below, yes it appears he is having a bad start to life. The previous owner should seriously be going to justice for this.

It's only a pup and I feel real bad for it. I hope that after we get the fecal done he'll be good to go. So, that they can find whatever worms are affecting him.

I had an adult dog with tapeworm and it was kind of easy to get rid of.
I hope you can get him on the road to health quickly so he can start packing in the nutrients and growing and developing normally.
They want to do a fecal test first. They weren't able to get one cause he hadn't eaten all day.

He is 2 months 3 weeks. He is almost 3 months in 2 days. He weighed 9 pounds 2.5 ounce.

He had been pooping them out all week that I have had him.

wolfie13 Took him to the vet and they ruled out parvo which is good. But he is too tiny and they are giving him meta(something) don't remember. He is dehydrated and they are giving him that to stay hydrated.

I am really upset by the previous owner giving and sellih a dog in that condition.
