    Diarrhea and vomiting in a pup can be very bad indeed. Has he been vaccinated?

    Best case scenario: tummy upset.

    Worst: Parvovirus, corona virus.

    In the middle are infections like coccidia which are nasty but bacterial so treatable with antibiotics.

    Is there any blood in his diarrhea? If it is bad vomiting and diarrhea severe dehydration can be the biggest problem, and if it is Parvo the dehydration can kill young pups quickly.

    You need to see a vet.

    How is pup?
    I am surprised they gave him the heartworm shot at that age?
    Or was it c3 and c5? or all 3?

    3 months is very young. We usually give our first heart worm injections at 6 months.
