Thank you, ***** ***** not a lot of chocolate in the thin mints but they are high in fat.

She may have some vomiting, diarrhea, or lack of appetite over the next 48 hours.

Or if she has a strong stomach she may not have any symptoms at all.

You can feed her and exercise her as usual.

Expert:  Dr. Gabby replied 8 months ago.

For an upset stomach you can give her one tablet of human Pepcid AC or Zantac every 12 hours as needed.

You can also give her 2 tablets or 2 tablespoons of pepto bismol every 6 hours as needed.

Feeding a bland diet of plain cooked chicken and rice can help too.

Does that help? Do you have any additional questions?
