Ask a Dog Vet and Get Answers to Your Dog Health Questions
Good Morning and welcome! I am Dr. Loretta, a licensed veterinarian and I am happy to answer your question.
It appears that your guy has a serious digestive disturbance possibly from something odd that he may have ingested. To stop the cycle, follow these instructions:
Fast your guy for 12-24 hrs to allow the digestive tract to calm down. Water is ok.Give him Imodium AD at ½ caplet per 15 pounds of weight every 8 hrs. available over the counter at the pharmacy.After the fast, feed a meal of rice and boiled chicken (2/1).
If this has resolved, wean your guy onto regular food. If this persists, have your vet examine your guy. Even the dehydration from this can be serious and then your vet will determine the cause so treatment can be initiated correctly.
Does that make sense to you?
Please let me know if you have ANY other questions. My goal is to give you 100% satisfaction and if you are not yet satisfied, please REPLY so I can clarify for you.Sincerely, ***** *****
You are very welcome, Karin! I hope your guy feels better soon!
