Get Your Dog Care Questions Answered by Experts
My name is ***** ***** I have been a Vet tech for 30+ years.
Dose there seem to be any abdominal pain?
Blood in the stool?
Is the dog still vomiting?
This sounds like a bout of Gastrointestinal distress due to eating something that she should not have. You mentioned Cat Food and that could do it. Sudden changes in diet can cause the problem. Dogs will eat grasses to make themselves vomit to relieve an upset stomach. You can use Pepcid AC 10 mg to aid in settling the stomach. If you give me the weight I can give you the dosage. You will need to fast the dog 12-14 hours depending on weight an small breed 12 hours a larger dog 24. Offer small amounts of water throughout the day. When you start to fed again we will start with a bland diet of 1 part skinless chicken breat to 3 parts white rice and a good spoon full of Pure canned pumpkin, not pie filling. Feed the bland diet for a few days and then wean back onto the gog food. If the dog starts to get worse, with more vomiting loose stools, or worse bloating, then a Vet visit will be needed. I do not think this is Giardia causing this as you would see loose stools as well as the vomiting.
