Dr. Altman responded last night to my questions. New issue
Dr. Altman responded last night to my questions. New issue tonight, I gave Sam the mirtazapine 7.5 mg last night (first one). He's just developed diarrhea. Called the emergency clinic and gave them his history. They said no human food and I explained that's all he'll eat right now and how much lbs. he's lost. Said to fix lean boiled hamburger with rice. He won't eat that and you can't put that in a syringe. I did purchase what you suggested, bison, pork baby food, cat food but haven't given that to him yet. I supposed that's not good if they have diarrhea. He's eaten canned dog food (chicken and turkey) mixed with water and given by syringe 3 x today, had several bites of skinless baked chicken breast this a.m. and part of lean hamburger with bun (no seasonings or condiments) in p.m. Been trying to get him to eat more often with less amounts. If the vet was open I'd get some Prescription Diet ID and mix with water and feed by syringe. I'm wondering if the mirtazapine caused the diarrhea, it's one of the side effects. The emergency vet said to keep giving him the mirtazapine and to give him pepto 1 T. every 4 hours if diarrhea continues. Any suggestions? Thanks
My chihuahua is sick he isn't a toy breed he's a bigger
My chihuahua is sick he isn't a toy breed he's a bigger breed of chihuahua. He can keep water down for 3 hours then he vomits I haven't given him any food but I do have food for sensitive stomach. I also have liquid stuff for upset stomach for dogs I gave him 5ccs of that stuff so far so good. He did poop so I'm not thinking he is backed up. The color of his vomit this morning was pea green and now it's clear. What do you recommend. I have given him pedialite in the past should I do that again. Oh his weight is 10-15 pounds
