Meat baby good is good for them and usually a consistency that they will eat. They tend to like turkey the best,..then you can move up to the baby meat sticks torn apart to get her used to chewing things. Keep us posted!

I use to do this with my cat Huly when he was super little and had constant upper resp. infections. Lock him in a small bathroom and turn on a shower (where he can not get in the water) on hot. It turns into a steam room and helps open the lungs.

I know you hate the vet there but you can try to find one of these to help with any infection he might have:

•Keep the puppy warm and dry.
•Do not let the puppy go out in the cold weather. Low temperatures tend to constrict the bronchial tubes, making breathing more difficult.
•Help to boost his immune system is necessary. While you cannot do enough for it, feeding him with boiled chicken and brown rice will give him extra energy and sufficient support for his immature immune system.
•Get a cool mist vaporizer and put it near the place where he sleeps to keep the bronchial tubes moist for easy breathing.

Echinacea - Echinacea is an herbal supplement that supports immune health. People often use it and your dog can also experience the benefits of this natural product. The powder from the capsules can be put into the dog’s food or water, but be sure to measure out the dosage according to the dog’s weight. The pills are generally dosed out for a typical human size and this would certainly be far too much for your dog.

Vitamins A and E - Vitamin A can be found in cod liver oil, which your dog will probably take fine on its own or you can place it in the dog’s food. One-fourth of a teaspoon per day is the recommended dosage. Vitamin E can be given in the liquid form at a dosage of 50 I.U. per day.

You can cook scrambled eggs in a well-seasoned wok with no oil. Or you can poach the egg in water and then chop it into very little pieces, add a little milk to moisten it.

If the pup is having difficulty getting enough nutrition at all, best to feed it anything it will eat, little and often. Even if it is just goat's milk and nutrition paste, it might be best to just focus on getting stronger right now and avoiding hypoglycaemia.

When I'm sick, I tend to only eat one or two "safe" foods too.

We had a litter of sick rescue pups who were having trouble eating, and our vet recommended meat baby food, with out onion or onion powder. It worked really well. We warmed it a little, and basically spoon fed them. After a little while we started adding a little hard kibble at a time until they were eating everything. Might work for your little guy. Good luck!

What did the vet give the med for? Infection? Many antibiotics make a dog vomit and have diarrhea. Make sure you give probiotics with the antibiotic. I'd go back to baby food.
