Default I need help with my sick puppy. please.

Hi, i have a "teacup" chihuahua, and i say that cause thats the only way i can describe him. Anyways, a couple of days ago he stopped being his usual self, as in not hyper, no barking, not running around or anything.

He's just laying around almost lethargic. He's throwing up and wont eat or drink anything. and since he's already small, he's starting to get skinnier from not eating. whats wrong with him? any help is very appreciated! thank you!

Get him to the vets as soon as possible,this is probably life threatening .LOW BLOOD SUGAR LEVEL.If you have nutrical or some honey put that round his gums.If you leave it any longer you will have a dead puppy.Please keep us updated

He needs to be seen by a vet immediately. If they cannot accommodate you today, please get him to an emergency vet.

With our little ones, juts waiting a day can be too late.

Ditto. Bundle him up. Get him to a vet as quickly as you can. Whatever the underlying cause is, he's going to need fluids and nutrients immediately. He needs medical care.
