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) Did the x-rays include contrast?2) Have there been any changes to the diet? New food? New treats? Human food? The opportunity to get into the trash? Torn up toys, etc?3) What medications are you giving or were given at the vet's office?
Have they given her anything for nausea, such as Cerenia?
Do you know if they given her anything for nausea, such as Cerenia?
The Cerenia injection should work for 24 hours. But her avoidance of food and severe lethargy today warrants returning to your vet's office for more diagnostics and treatment. If she were my own dog, I would discuss if a barium series would be worthwhile and talk about hospitalization, as well, seeing as how she is profoundly lethargic and may need to have her blood glucose stabilized. As well, they can give her other injectable medications to calm symptoms she's having, including any discomfort in the abdomen which might be present and keeping her from wanting to eat, and keep her hydrated on fluids while her body overcomes whatever has caused her to feel unwell.
Good luck!! Please keep me posted on how she's doing and if I can help you further.
