Ask a Dog Vet and Get Answers to Your Dog Veterinary Questions
Good Morning and welcome! I am Dr. Loretta, a licensed veterinarian and I am happy to answer your question.
Your poor little guy, Zeus, has a mild digestive disturbance due to this ingestion of a high carbohydrate food. Follow these instructions:
Fast Zeus for 12-24 hrs to allow the digestive tract to calm down and heal.Give him 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 Zeus is feeling better, wean him back to his regular diet. If he is still not feeling well, it is time to take Zeus to your vet for testing to be sure we have not missed something such as Diabetes.
Does that make sense to you?
