How long has your dog been feeling unwell?
He has been doing this off and on for about two months. He will have a few good days and then a bad day. His stomach will start making noises, he refuses any food for 24 to 36 hours. He gets up and moves around then lays back down, his noise gets dry and he pants. Wants to eat grass or lick the rug.
After he goes outside and eats grass he will retch.
Can you check your dog's gum color? Are they pink, pale pink or white?
Pink with maybe a darker pink at the top of both center molars. He has no
lower front teeth from age and playing disc games.
Does the dog seem bright or lethargic?
Bright, wants to go outside for walk or to play
. Comes back inside and is obviously
having tummy trouble.
What can I give him to settle his stomach? Can you give a dog bicarb soda? I have tried Pepto but he hates it. Would a 1/4 to 1/6 a tablet of Imodium Multi Symptom work?
I don't have a car to take him to vet or to go to store. I'm recovering from cancer surgery and live alone.
Does your dog have any health issues that you know of?
He is 15 years old. My last ACD living. He has an mole on his side that is larger now and darker. Might be cancer. He also has large fattey growths
under his chest and arms that were removed once but have come back but smaller. They were tested benigh before.
I tried to change his eating habits and fed him twice a day in smaller portions and add fiber to it food. That worked for about two weeks. Now he won't eat the meal in the morning at all.
