so today i kind stole a dog from my cousin. their story is that they sold the dog at 8 weeks, today a week later the guy brought him back saying that they didnt have money to feed him, and the dog doesnt look completly horrible, but can tell its malnourished, since ive had him... for 5 hours all hes done is sleep and puked up white clearish bile and refuses food or water. im going to be taking him to the vet tomorrow, but was wondering if anyone was online now that could give me a few pointers on what to do until i can find a vet in my area to get him in.

Parvo was my first though.

Try cooking up some white rice for him. Rice retains water and will help keep him hydrated. If you have some hamburger you could boil it and use the water from that to cook the rice.

Good luck and please keep us posted.
