hi therehow long has this been going on?is the dog will or able to eat or drink anything?any diarrhea?Thanks and I look forward to helping
just started about twenty minutes ago-no diarrhea-yes, she can drink.
Ok. Thanks for the additional info. I should have also asked if she could have gotten into anything that she shouldn't....household chemicals? antifreeze? the garbage? eaten a dead animal carcass outside?
think she might have eaten some meatloaf off of a plate earlier today.
OkIt is most likely that your dog has developed an upset gastrointestinal tract from the ingestion of a unfamiliar protein source...we call this pancreatitis because the pancreas (which is near the small intestine) also gets very inflamed. The best thing you can do is hold the dog off food overnight tonight. Make sure she is drinking water. Licking the floor is a sign of nausea. To try and help the nausea and vomiting you can give some pepto-bismol. You didnt say what size your dog is but the pepto dose is 1 teaspoon per 20 lbs body Weight. Tomorrow you can try and feed your dog a very small amount of food. If the vomiting continues or your dog also develops a fever (temp greater than 102 F) or diarrhea, then you need to have her seen by a vet.I hope this has been helpful.SincerelyDr. Melissa
