Ask a Dog Vet and Get Answers to Your Dog Veterinary Questions
Hi there- I am Dr. Kane and will help you with Ginger tonight. I'm sorry to hear she is not feeling well. You mentioned she seems tired- how long has she been like this? Any vomiting or diarrhea, or other concerns?
When did this start? And when did she eat the egg salad?
OK- got it. And has her appetite been good?
Aspirin can be given to dogs in very low doses- but I only recommend for certain situations- and not a good idea right now when we don't know what is ailing her. Especially in a dog with a history of pancreatitis- it may exacerbate stomach irritation/upset. If you think it may be another bout of pancreatitis coming on- make sure she stays hydrated (can add extra water to food), and make sure she is eating only her prescription low fat diet (if one was prescribed by her veterinarian), and no treats or table scraps.
OK, that is a good start. At this time her symptoms seem fairly non-specific- meaning it could be any number of things. With her history of pancreatitis, it may be worthwhile to touch base with her veterinarian for a checkup if this abnormal behavior doesn't resolve soon.
Do you have any other specific questions I can help with tonight?
If you have no further questions, please provide me with a rating when you have a moment. I hope Ginger is feeling better soon!
