Get Your Dog Care Questions Answered by Experts
Hello, JACustomer. I have been a Veterinary Nurse for over 15 years and would be happy to help you today. I'm reviewing your question right now.
1) When was the last time that Cavalli had a full panel of blood work and urinalysis performed?2) Has the vomiting continued or only occurred once?3) Any changes in the stool?
The increased drinking and panting is reason for concern and I would recommend an exam and bloodwork to be sure the they don't indicate a medical issue about which you should be concerned.For the short-term, you can administer a dose of regular pepcid (famotidine) every 12-24 hours when you see vomiting. 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 visit any human pharmacy and buy the OTC brand name Pepcid, or you can use the cheaper, off-brand “famotidine” that’s available. Either will be useful.
Checking in, JACustomer. I didn't hear back from you yesterday. How is your companion doing today? Improvements? Do you need additional assistance?
