just today didn't seem totally him, he whimpers sometimes when he's laying down, once he gets laid down he's fine, just sluggish and all, have not seen him poop today, but he was outside for a while first thing this morning by himself. haven't seen him eat more than a couple treats no food, some water. thought I'd see any ideas, if he's not acting better by morning i guess its off to the vet..
Please help

Hopefully he is just experiencing "normal" discomfort or nausea. You might want to watch for signs of bloat http://www.peteducation.com/article.cfm?cls=2&cat=1571&articleid=402 and poisoning (any chance he got into a toxic plant or something else he shouldn't have while out in the yard or int he house?) SEven month old puppies are very curoius and can be quite sneaky about getting into things they shouldn't ! Here is a link for the ASPCA Poison Control Centre ~ just in case you think of any questionable plants or items around your house and yard. http://www.aspca.org/site/PageServer?pagename=pro_apcc

And do let us know how you make out !
