Get Your Dog Care Questions Answered by Experts
Hello. I am sorry to hear that Cinni is not feeling well. My name is ***** ***** I would be happy to help.
When did he eat the Twizzlers?
Any chance he got in to anything other then the Twizzlers?
Twizzlers of course can cause digestive upset, the bigger concern is that in some dogs this can also cause inflammation of the pancreas.
To help settle his stomach you can give either Pepcid AC at a dose of 0.25 mgs per pound of body weight every 12 hours or Pepto Bismol at a dose of 1 teaspoon per 20lbs of body weight every 8-12 hours.
I would not worry about him not eating as we would have recommended fasting anyway. I would just let him have a few ice cubes tonight to keep him hydrated ( drinking water can lead to more vomiting), give him something to settle his stomach and let him rest. Tomorrow I would start him on a bland diet of boiled chicken or hamburger and white rice or sweet potato. Feed this in small meals several times per day for 2 days.
If he does not eat tomorrow, vomits after eating or seems painful in his abdomen then I would have him seen by a vet to make sure the pancreas levels are not elevated.
I hope this helps and he feels better soon.
