Ask a Dog Vet and Get Answers to Your Dog Health Questions
Hi there and thank you for your question. My name is ***** ***** I am a licensed, internship-trained veterinarian with 11 years experience in general medicine and emergency and critical care medicine and I would be happy to assist you. Please be patient as there may be slight delays in responses as I research your pet's issue.
Is she jumping up and down on things/furniture as vigorously as usual? Is she doing stairs as usual? Or is she less excited about either?
Okay, great, that's helpful info. I suspect we are dealing with a gastrointestinal issue rather than a neurologic issue, then. I would give 10mg of Prilosec (1/2 tablet of 20mg Prilosec) tonight or 1/4 of a 10mg Pepcid A/C tablet. Then offer a bland diet of boiled chicken breast and white rice for the next 24 hours or so.
I hope that I have answered your question thoroughly. If you still have questions, please reply. If you feel that I have provided anything less than excellent service, please reply to me first before rating my service and let me know how I can better assist you. Thank you for your question; it has been a pleasure being able to provide assistance. Bonuses are not necessary, but are appreciated, as they go directly to me rather than to the website. Best of luck.
To be honest, it sounds most like back pain, but you say she's acting normally with her activity, which is puzzling. Pepto can help, just not as well as the other drugs. But you can try a teaspoon of Pepto if you do not have a pharmacy open near you.
