My name is ***** ***** I have been a Vet tech for 30+ years .
I understand Laya is Vomiting, is there any diarrhea?
Was she eating the Acorns today before this happened?
The Acorns are toxic due to tanic acid in them and they also can cause Kidney issues if she ingests them. So the Acorns are a big concern. http://www.southarundelvet.com/sites/site-2440/documents/acorns.pdf They can cause the vomiting you are seeing as well as Diarrhea in some cases. I cannot recommend Promethazine since it is a Prescription medication and not prescribed for Her. However what we can give is Pepcid AC, Tagamet, or we can give Zantac. Other than those I cannot recommend a medication. We need to pick up the water and only give in small amounts since drinking to much will cause her to vomit more. We also need to fast her for the next 24 hours. When the 24 hours is up, we will start a blanc diet of 1 part boiled skinless chicken breast to 3 parts white rice and a table spoon of Canned Pumpkin which is a fiber food and can aid is settling the stomach.
If you do not have any of the medication I mentioned we can just go with the fasting for the next 24 hours.
I did find this information on Promethazine and it is used for dogs, but it is illegal for me to tell you that you can use it since a prescription drug needs an in person Vet visit: http://www.vetbook.org/wiki/dog/index.php/Promethazine
If you have the Pepcid AC, Tigan or Zantac in the house since they are over the counter I can gove you dosages for those,
We do use Pilosec and it 30 mgs for a dog her size every 24 hours. She should only need one dose and by that time start the bland diet I suggested. If the vomiting contines through tomorrow, I suggest a Vet visit to be sure that there is not something more going on. The Acorns are a likely reason for the vomiting and you may have to isolate her from that area. My goal is to give you excellent service and earn a 5 star rating.
I am checking in on Laya to see how she is doing. It has been a couple of days and want to make sure she is doing better. Please post an update.
