|Update. After we came home from the vet, Whisper had one more loose bloody stool, and he had water. After that he slept all the time. He woke up only about 5 minutes ago, had more water, and seems to be much improved, no retching, no more poopies at all, he is sniffing for food (I feel sorry for him but he has to go with no food for 12 hours, that's what the vet said). He even played a little with one of his toys, and he doesn't hold his head and tail down anymore, actually he is wagging his tail. He is still asking ofr a lot of kisses and petting and wants me to hold my hand on his tummy. I called the vet and he said that probably he is still cramping, and that it looks that it is a bacterial enteritis after all and Whisper should be fine with the antibiotic treatment and a bland diet for a few days. I'm still monitoring him.
They ruled out the parvo from the test and the blood test also (normal white cells count) and also his stool and the white foam he was retching don't have a bad smell. I know the parvo smell, I had lost two dogs to it in the past, it's a smell nobody ever forgets.
I hope my little Whisper will be ok, vet said that if by morning we still are doing fine than we shouldn't worry anymore, we're on the right track.
