Hello, JACustomer. I have been a Veterinary Nurse for over 15 years and would be happy to help you today. I'm reviewing your question right now.
Which occurred first? The wax beans being consumed or vomiting?Were these raw? cooked? Did they have anything like butter added?
There is a very good chance that the vomiting is due to the change In diet with the food. Try to give only a few tips from beans at a time.The first step is to administer a dose of regular pepcid (famotidine) every 12-24 hours. You will want to give 0.5mg/pound of body weight (a 10# ***** would receive 5mg, a 5# ***** would receive 2.5mg, etc). For this, you can visit any human pharmacy and buy the OTC brand name Pepcid, or you can use the cheaper, off-brand “famotidine” that’s available. Either will be useful.
Were you able to see my reply above?
Typically if painful we see that they will vocalize but GI discomfort is common with upsets. He would likely not want his abdomen to be touch, might growl if approached, might also walk hunched up to protect his abdomen, etc. The famotidine as mentioned above should help with the growling stomach noises, as well
Checking in, JACustomer. I didn't hear back from you yesterday. How is your companion doing today? Improvements? Do you need additional assistance?
