Dog Health Questions? Ask a Dog Vet for Answers ASAP
Hello there. My name isXXXXX and I am sorry to hear about Audrey. That is great that you are keeping her hydrated with small amounts of water and a syringe that is very important. You can give pepto at a dose of 1 teaspoon per 15 lbs of body weight every 8 hours to help settle her tummy down. If she is still nauseated by Monday request some "cerenia" from your vet which is a much stronger anti nausea medication to settle her tummy down. Also offer her boiled chicken and rice or boiled beef and rice to try and get some nutrition in her. You can use low sodium chicken broth to mix in to get even more hydration in her until she starts to feel better. Even though her blood work was normal she may need a short course of anti biotics to knock out an infection that may be present and not showing up on blood work. Keeping cold compresses on her pads and belly is the best way to cool her off. That is where she will release the most heat. So I would give this a try for the next 24 hours and see how she does and if not big improvements then monday talk to your vet about the anti biotics and the stronger nausea medications to settle her tummy down. Keep up the good work with keeping her hydrated that is the most important part until she gets over the hump and feels better. I hope this helps. please let me know if you have any additional questions or concerns. I would be happy to help. Please do not forget to rate my response so I receive credit for my time. Thank you!
