Ask a Dog Vet and Get Answers to Your Dog Health Questions
Hello, my name is***** am a licensed veterinarian and I will try and help you as best as I can.
Please allow a few minutes for me to read your responses and for me to respond back.
I am sorry to hear Tula is not feeling well.
I will need a little bit more information to better help you today.
Has she eaten anything she shouldn't have such as grass, toys, clothing, people food, etc?
Any recent change in diet or any new medications given recently?
What came up the vomiting and was there any blood or pink tinge to the vomit?
Does she seem painful if you press on her belly?
her signs are very nonspecific. They could be due to an upset stomach, stress, foreign object ingestion, dietary indiscretion, pancreatitis, tumors, etc. We just don't know enough yet at this point.
Your options are to monitor at home: give a bland diet of boiled chicken and white rice for the next 24 hours. You can also give a 10mg famotidine (pepcid AC) tablet every 12 hours. If there is no improvement, then you move to the other option which is heading to the vet for an exam and treatment/medical workup. You could alternatively head to the vet now, but if she is doing well otherwise it would not be wrong to wait.
You are very welcome.
It is likely this is just an upset stomach and she needs a little time.
I wish you the best. Have a great day!
