DearCustomer Thank you for the additional information, sorry it took so long to get back to you, I had to step out for a bit. For this issue, I think we can start conservatively but if there is any progression an immediate vet trip is warranted. There are a lot of different possibilities for what may be going on, some of the more common ones are the possibility of a foreign body which could be almost anything! Sometimes these will go through on their own, but sometimes they get caught. If after about three days she is still blah this could be an even higher risk. The clinical signs of this are usually vomiting, decreased appetite and depression or lethargy. The treatment for this is usually surgical if there has been an obstruction for this long. You can check out www.petplace.com
for more information on this surgery. Before surgery she will need radiographs and blood work completed. Hopefully, she doesn't have a foreign body and just has some GI upset. Maybe from eating something (although that doesn't sound like there has been too much of a chance for this) but we just can't know. This could have caused just a little stomach upset or something more severe like pancreatitis. Dogs with pancreatitis are usually very acutely very sick with a fever and vomiting and appear in pain. But if this is mild condition, we may not see them as severely as I am describing here. This would again require veterinary evaluation and blood work plus maybe other diagnostics to determine if this is the issue. She could have some more in depth medical condition such as bacterial overgrowth with something like salmonella (again less likely) but can't be determined without veterinary evaluation. In the end, I can't tell you over the internet exactly what is going on, and several of these conditions need prompt veterinary care. For at home care, there is a traditional period of gut rest for about 12 hours which means she can have water (pedialyte unflavored is good as well) but no solids. After about 12 hours she can have a little plain white rice mixed with plain boiled no fat chicken. Feed her several small meals of this. After about 48 hours of this she can be started slowly back on her normal food, a tiny bit of normal food mixed with the rice and at each feeding more and more normal food. Finally, she needs a little rest and relaxation. Keep her warm, monitor her for easy breathing, making sure her color stays pink (look at her gums) and that she is not showing any signs of acutely more pain, depression, bleeding, etc. I hope this helps, best of luck to you and your pup, please let me know if there is any way I can be of further assistance, Dr. Karen If this information has been helpful, please click the “ACCEPT” button and provide feedback.
