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.
Can you please share a list of ingredients on the tube you have?
Rosie is likely going to experience some diarrhea and flatulence from ingesting the aquaphor. If the bloated appearance continues, you see dry heaving, she begins vomiting, etc. it would be advisable to have her examined.To help with the gas buildup, you can give her a 1/4 of a normal dose of regular gas-x for adults.You should also move her over to a bland diet for a few days to prevent/treat diarrhea. To make this, 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 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. If your companion requires a more palatable food, try adding in pureed baby food in chicken, turkey and similar flavors. Avoid those that contain onion or garlic in the ingredient panel. Work up to feeding exclusively until at least 3 days following the resolution of the GI upset. After this, work on slowly switching back to the regular food that your companion typically eats.
If she is greatly uncomfortable, I would see the vet promptly. Otherwise, I would give the gas-x and wait an hour. If she's still showing no improvement, I would have her examined.
