With the lack of appetite and eating grass, my hope is that this is a bad gastroenteritis - or upset stomach
If you would like to try conservative management at home, you can try to offer a bland diet
. A common bland diet is boiled chicken
and rice (2/3 rice and 1/3 chicken). I would try this for about 1 week, hoping that she improves over this time.
You can also consider giving 10mg of Pepcid A/C (famotidine
) by mouth every 12 hours for 5 days for stomach
upset. You can purchase this over the counter.
If the signs do not resolve - or worsen - in 48-72 hours, then I would see your primary veterinarian.
Regarding a veterinary visit, tests they may consider performing include:
- Evaluation of the feces for abnormal bacteria or parasites
- Bloodwork to check electrolytes and organ values
- Potentially even x-rays.
Hopefully with a little food change / bland diet, everything will be better in a few days.
