Get Your Dog Care Questions Answered by Experts
hello and thank you for using this site to help you/ My name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist you.
What breed of dog do you have?
Can you tell me please if the dog may have eaten anything it was not used to either in human food or dog food/treats?
Does he ear any non food items such as rawhides, bones, toys, etc?
when did he last eat food for you?
Thank you for that information. If he got into trash he could have eaten anything. It could have caused mild stomach upset, however if there were anything like onions or garlic in the garbage then that can be toxic. Spoiled foods can also cause garbage toxicosis.
What I would dog is take all of the dogs vital signs to determine if it is an emergency. I will direct you to a link to take you step by step.
If he seems okay, meaning the gum color and refill time is good, there is no fever, etc. then I would not give any food for 24 hours then start a bland diet of boiled chicken and cooked white rice.
For tonight you can try giving some pepcid ac and see if that will calm the stomach a bit. I will direct you to a site with dosing and information .
Please hold a minute while I find those links for you
