Thanks for the information. With the diarrhea
, hopefully it is just something she ate. In fact, if there is any blood or mucus in the stool, or if she is straining to defecate or has the urge to defecate often; that most likely is the case. That is usually inflammation in the colon (colitis), which is typically dietary related. Parasites, stress, liver, pancreatic and large intestinal mass issues are also possible. Worse case scenario is that she has a GI foreign body obstruction or developed a severe uterine infection called a pyometra
. With an obstruction, her appetite may be down or non-existent. A pyometra can develop anywhere from a week to 2 months after a heat cycle. It is a very severe infection. Check her vulva for any discharge. If you see some, that is most likely the case, and she needs to be seen by a vet immediately. That would be an open pyometra. With a closed pyometra, they get sick much faster and usually has some abdominal pain. At this point, it doesn't sound like an emergency situation to me. I would keep her off of food tonight. Only let her have a small amount of water at a time. If she hasn't vomited by tomorrow morning, give her a small amount of boneless, skinless chicken breast and rice (all cooked) every 30 minutes to an hour and monitor for vomiting. If she eats and holds it down after 4-6 hours, she will probably be okay. If not eating tomorrow morning, or if she continues vomiting, I would have your vet check her out to make sure it is nothing more serious. If she has any blood in the stool, it may be best to have her checked out today. Pepto bismol is usually safe for dogs (1 teaspoon per 20lbs of body weight every 4-6 hours for 24 hours), but it can make a stomach ulcer worse, and it shouldn't be used if there is any hint of blood in the stool or vomit. Please let me know if you have any other questions. Hope this helps.
