Hes had nothing else. Actually steam cleaned w no chemicals all carpets and flooring before we got him.
Expert:  Dr. Gabby replied 3 months ago.

Never mind. Just read he throws up all water.

Expert:  Dr. Gabby replied 3 months ago.

So if he can not keep water down he is going to dehydrate very quickly.

Expert:  Dr. Gabby replied 3 months ago.

You will not be able to keep up with his fluid loss with oral rehydration like children's pedialyte drink.

Expert:  Dr. Gabby replied 3 months ago.

He needs to see a vet today for hydration as well as medication to stop the vomiting and diarrhea.

Expert:  Dr. Gabby replied 3 months ago.

When a dog is vomiting and not keeping water down or fluids down then it will not do any good to give over the counter oral medication as he will just vomit it back up.

Expert:  Dr. Gabby replied 3 months ago.

You should be able to find an open vet clinic if you try right now.

Most close 5-6:00 on weekdays.

Expert:  Dr. Gabby replied 3 months ago.

Otherwise the emergency clinic is open 24/7.

So I think he does need to see a vet today as he can not be treated with over the counter medications as he will just vomit it back up.

Ok calling vet hospital in mean time he has peed eyes still look wet and giving chicken
Expert:  Dr. Gabby replied 3 months ago.

Ok if he can not keep water down do not give chicken as that will come right back up.

See if you have some honey, pancake syrup, or karo syrup on hand. Rub some on his gums to help keep his blood sugar up.

Expert:  Dr. Gabby replied 3 months ago.

Only let him drink small amounts of water as if he drinks too much as once he will vomit it back up.

Expert:  Dr. Gabby replied 3 months ago.

For future reference dogs can take human Pepcid AC or Pepto bismol to settle their stomachs.

The reason I did not recommend that is because if he is vomiting up water he will vomit the pepcid or the pepto right back up.

But yes, chicken and rice makes a good bland diet to feed him once he has stopped vomiting.
