I would take him back asap to the vet , puppies dehydrate very quickly and that is not good at all.

I agree with Frenchy--another vet visit is in order. It almost sounds like an intestinal blockage. Does he have a fever? Has he been peeing and pooping?

Dehydration can be very dangerous, especially in small young dogs. Until you can get him back to the vet make sure he gets plenty of water.

for a quick recovery for your dachshund!

It sounds like he's in good hands now, blazedpr8! What did the vet say about his prognosis?

Dogs can and do recover fully from intestinal blockages--sometimes they require surgery, but sometimes dogs pass whatever is blocking the intestine on their own. The body has a tremendous ability to heal itself.

At this point, you've done what you can. Stay positive!

Glad you took him back to the vet. Did the vet say if her performed surgery? If he did perform surgery most dogs recover fine.

If the vet did not perform surgery to remove the obstruction then he feels it was small enough for your dog to pass it out in his poop.

Yes it is , my guys always sleep more when they come back from a stay at the vet , I'm glad your puppy is doing better I'm hoping it was nothing and you won't have to take him back , we know how expensive these things are.

keep us posted ok ?

So your vet hasn't performed any surgery yet to remove an obstruction. Did he say if your pup pooped anything out? If he hasn't yet then you should check all his poops closely for anything undigestible.

Good luck.....I hope he recovers quickly.

The fact that he did poop is a very good sign, though! A dog with a blockage can't move stool through the intestine!

that he doesn't need surgery!

Keep the portions small but fairly frequent. You don't want to overtax his intestine at this point. If you're unsure of how much, call the vet's office and see what they recommend. Our dogs get tired of rice pretty quickly, but pasta (like elbow macaroni) works like a charm, too.

Is he still pooping and peeing? When does he see the vet next?

If he's getting some energy back and there's overall improvement then you're on the right track.

And don't forget to overcook your rice , or pasta if you want to try that. Small portions.

I'm glad he's doing better
