Good morning. Lilli vomited vomited once and then five minutes after coming back inside, she went out again and had very loose bowels. Since then she has been sleeping on and off and stays really close to me. Presently she is sleeping but she wakes up sporadically with shaking. Now, she has been sleeping consistently for 20 minutes without shakes.
Lilli weighs 13 pounds. She is a Shih Tzu.
It is very common to have a GI upset after eating pork or chewing on a pork bone. If they eat the bone , there is another danger of getting an obstruction. You can give her pepto-bismol at a dose of 1 tsp three times daily. This should help calm her GI tract, but if not better by this afternoon, I would take her to your vet for an exam and possible x-rays. I hope this information helps, thank you, XXXXX XXXXX
I would give the pepto instead of the cerenia because it should help the diarrhea more.
Thank you very much. I feel less afraid and helpless. This site is a great idea. You were very helpful.
Take Care and have a pleasant day.
