Customer Question

JA: IÂ’m sorry to hear that. Hopefully it didn't make a mess. Did the dog eat anything unusual?
Customer: 10 yr old Snauzer has thrown up realy this am and now at 2:30pm has had diarreah! She was fine yesterday but will not eat nor drink!
JA: What is the dog's name?
Customer: She is usually very cheerful and happy!
JA: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about the dog?
Customer: She is up on all of her shots and has had flea and tick medication applied to her back!
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Veterinarian about your situation and then connect you two.

I have been waiting for a response to my questions.We can help her by fasting for 24 hours. Please give 1/4 of a Pepcid AC 10mgs, to help settle her stomach. You can add Pedialyte to the water she drinks along with salt free chicken broth. We want her stomach to rest. Once you star to feed please give a table sppon full of Canned Pumpkin along with 1 part boiled chicken Breast to 3 parts white Rice. This is a bland diet and should help resolve the Diarrhea.Since we do not know the cause we treat as gastrointestinal distress if it gets worse, then she will need to see the Vet. In most cases this is self resolving in a day or two with the rested stomach and Bland diet.Joan
