Unhappy Help with my new 9 month old Hav.... Please

Hello I'm new here and also a new owner of the most cutest Havanese Milo (9 months old)

I've had milo for about three weeks now and he has his ups and downs, some days he's energetic and other days he just sleeps and is very quite. We had a vet visit and I was told he was just fine just a little thin and could gain just a little but not too much. Today he uke up his food twice and now he keeps pacing and he keeps walking along the walls and in corners. I'm not sure what's wrong with him but I'm worried. I take him out in our yard and he's doing the same thing. I don't know if I should feed him again? He has water and has been drinking so that's a good sign. it's been a long time since I have had a dog and I've never had a small breed of dog, but my mother has a 5 year old Hav and I fell in love with hers so I just had to have milo when I saw him and I'm so attached to him already.

Any help would be appreciated!!!

Milly & Milo

Well I bought him from a lady that was moving out of town and could not take him with, she purchased him from a breeder in IN. He had his shots and has been neutered. That's all I know.

I would take him to the vet. Kodi has done this a couple of times, and each time, it has been because of abdominal pain. The first time was due to an impaction after I fed him a dental chew without knowing any better. The second time, he had a Clostridium infection. Both times he needed medical attention to get better.

The vet at the emergency hospital (where I had to take him the first time, as he was very, VERY sick) said that this behavior is not uncommon in a dog with abdominal pain.

I would scoop the poop and take sample to the vet to get tested. It can be one of those nasty bugs that give them tummy and intestinal cramps. Roki had giardaia and cryptosprotidia. It was treated with Panacur (two rounds, two weeks apart) and second poop test came negative. Roki is feeling much, much better

Is it like a fast pacing? I've seen gucci do that when her stomach hurts or from eating too fast (?) IDK, you should try to keep an eye on when he does it and see if you can figure out a common theme and go to the vet to be sure.

Actually, the vet told me that when they have abdominal pain, they often seek out, and eat, strange things. which is why they surf around the base of cabinets and walls that way)

Healthy dogs eat grass all the time and it doesn't make them sick. It's only when they are nauseated anyway that they vomit after eating grass.

hi Milli - welcome, I would get him to the vet for a visit. Do you know the name of the vet who saw him before?
