Thank you for the reply. I went to 2 doctors. one vet said he must fast till monday (So 60 hrs). The other one said he could stop his fast tonight and eat a lil bit of food. Usually he eats 180 g of royal canin hepatic canned. He's about 4.7 to 4.8 kg. The portion at the back of the canned said 215g for obese dogs. My dog is fat. When he started to get sick last week. He lost his appetite and his food must be forced. He ate about 90 - 120 g daily divided into 3 small meals.
right now he's still on IV drip and his stomach is gurgling. Should I be worry? Will his condition become worse because of fasting and Which is the best way to take? Because if he fast, it will be for 60 hrs and that seems to be a very long time.
What is the normal range of period of fasting for pancreatitis dog? How many gram of food should I give him? The label says for obese dog its 215 g. Normally I would give him 160 -180 g. For the past week when he started to get sick I gave him about 90 -120 g.
Thank you for your help. Oh I forgot to ask. Should he be given painkiller or antibiotics? Its already 4.50 pm here. What time should I give him his food? Because he need to rest and sleep. Today have been crazy hectic at the vet and he's easily stressed and panicky dog. If i give him 30 g tonight and 30g tomorrow morning (8am). Is that alright? Thanx again.
He's not crying or not screaming when his tummy being touched or pressed. But he seems restless and pacing around unable to sleep. probably because of his nausea? So does that means he doesn't need painkiller just yet? Thanks so much.
I think i made a mistake and his IV drip was too fast and thats why he was kinda like having a heart attack? Could this damage his heart or his veins? Thank you so much.
