He is a 6 month old German Shepard. He has had watery diarrhea diarrhea for two days & has thrown up twice ( just bile ) . Is there something I can do at home?

JA: What's the Shepherd's name and age?
Customer: 6 months Anubis
JA: Is there anything else the Vet should know before I connect you? Rest assured that they'll be able to help you.

OK - is there any chance he ate something he shouldn’t have? Like plastic, rocks or toys?

I don't think so but with him being a puppy it's a possibility I'm sure.

That sounds concerning and as a puppy, they will get more dehydrated faster than an adult dog

I would stop the dental sticks and anything that's not part of his dog food for now, and see if that helps clear the issue up. I'm very glad that he's acting OK and playing, but untreated vomiting and diarrhea can become an issue pretty quick in a youngster. Do you have a regular in person veterinarian that you've seen before?

If it doesn't resolve within a day, I do recommend an in person vet exam to make sure there isn't something else going on that needs to be address. In youngsters I worry about foreign bodies and infections.
