Ask a Dog Vet and Get Answers to Your Dog Health Questions
Hi there. Thanks for the question. Let me see if I can help. Im sorry to hear that your dog got into some bad meat.
Eating rotten meat can cause pancreatitis and colitis......giiving an antibiotic like Duramycin is not the recommended therapy. And it can be more upsetting to the stomach. I would not recommend doing that.....but here are some other things you can do to help.....
Feed only a bland diet ......maybe cooked white rice and boiled boneless skinless chicken breasts. Give 1/2 cup rice plus 1/2 cup shredded chicken. Add some water to help keep her hydrated.
You can give her Pepcid AC to help withh stomach upset. Give 10 mg Pepcid 2 x per day.
If the dog has a fever....you can give human buffered aspirin to help with the fever and the GI pain. If your dog is about 50 lbs you can give 1/2 of a regular human buffered aspirin.
Some additional notes:
Tetracyyline antibiotics like Duramycin can cause cartilege issues in young growing dogs so that is another reason to not use this antibiotic in your pup.
If the bland diet and over the counter meds I have reocmmend do not help. Or if your dog can not keep water down, please get her in to see a vet ASAP.
I hope this has been helpful. Best of luck..
