Get Your Dog Care Questions Answered by Experts
Hello and thank you for your question. I am a Veterinary Nurse with over 15 years experience and I have assisted in the care of many pets with this particular medical concern. It would be my pleasure to assist you today.Head trauma often does result in some nausea that follows. If it persists, having him examined would be the most ideal approach. There are medications that can be used to help calm the nausea. Because he's so small, I wouldn't wait too long before intervening with him not eating well (if that's the case). Try hand-feeding some canned food or try pureed baby food in chicken or turkey flavors. Once he's eating well, some canned pumpkin (not the pie filler) can be added in to help with the blood in his stool.You can also try giving him 0.5mg/pound of pepcid by mouth every 12-24 hours to help calm the stomach. Wait about 2 hours after a dose of the pepcid to feed him. You can find the pepcid OTC in the human pharmacy section of the store.
