Have Dog Health Questions? Ask a Dog Vet Online.
Good Morning and welcome. I am Dr. Loretta , a licensed veterinarian and am happy to answer your question.
I have a few questions to help me better assist you.
Why do you think Tank was poisoned?
Could he have ingested something odd?
How long has this been going on?
Sincerely, XXXXX XXXXX
He chews up anything he can find
about 1/2 hour
Fast Tank for 12-24 hrs to allow the digestive tract to calm down and heal.
Give Tank Pepcid AC or Famotidine at 0.5 mg per pound every 8 hrs. That can be purchased over the counter at the pharmacy.
Give only small amounts of water during the fast or ice cubes
After the fast, feed rice and boiled chicken (2/1)
If the vomiting and shaking has resolved, then wean Tank back onto regular food. If the vomiting persists especially during the fast, take Tank to your vet for an exam and lab work to determine the cause for this. This is extremely important since this can cause dehydration or other more serious concerns such as an intestinal obstruction or infectious agent.
Does that make sense to you, Tom?

We took Tank to the Vet. He had a stick stuck in his throat'. He is fine now. Did not appreciate you charging me the $13.00 before you even knew whether I liked your answer or not. By the way your answer was fine but took quite a while before I got it. Do not know whether it woude have helped or not, Never had a dog with a poison att
