Customer Question

My 7 yr. Old healthy Dachshund has been throwing up since last nite. I did feed him some if my food at dinner. It has happened about 6 times since last night. Once before my vet said there was something I could give him, I think k it was pepto bismol, but don't want to without checking.

The best treatment for vomiting is to withhold food and water for about 4 hours. Have you tried this? Does it stop his vomiting?

Pepto Bismol or Pepcid can be used, but since these are oral they can stimulate vomiting too. Is Rusty able to keep water down without vomiting?
