Anytime a young dog begins having any vomiting, diarrhea, etc. we must always be concerned about the risk of parvo, distemper, etc. This should be kept in the back of your mind in case she does not stop vomiting. At that point, she will need to be rechecked and injectable meds given, after diagnostics have shown that she has no illnesses such as these.
There are a few things that can be done at home to help make a pet with a stomach upset feel better. The first thing is to administer a dose of regular pepcid (famotidine) every 12-24 hours. You will want to give 0.5mg/pound of body weight (a 10# ***** would receive 5mg, a 5# ***** would receive 2.5mg, etc). For this, you can buy the brand name Pepcid, or you can use the cheaper, off-brand “famotidine” that’s available. Either will be useful.
2 hours following a dose of famotidine, the time needed for the medication to begin working, you can offer more pureed chicken or chicken and rice baby food or a bland diet. To make this the bland diet, you’ll combine white or brown rice, boneless, skinless chicken breast and sufficient water for cooking in a stock pot. Boil on medium until it turns to mush and the breast is easily flaked. To avoid more nausea, start with small amounts to begin with and offer the amount every 2-4 hours. A few teaspoons to start is typically sufficient and you can work your way up every 2-4 hours in incremental increases until you’re sure no vomiting will be seen.
Again, if this does not result in the improvements you’re wanting, it will be necessary to have your companion examined by a veterinarian and injectable medications for nausea administered. I’m particularly a big fan of Cerenia for vomiting as it tends to work quickly, does a great job and works for a full 24 hours.
