My 9 pound poodle accidently ate quite a few (maybe a doz. advil, really don't know?) & maybe around 5-6 excidrine migraine. again really don't know how many? He has thrown up a lot now for 2 days. Still is drinking water, but hasn't been able to keep any food down. The only food we give him is a very nutritional dry dog food. I even tried crushing up just 3 kernals this am & he still couldn't keep it down. He seems hungry.I'm needing some suggestions of what to feed him or have him drink besides water. He did also have a bowel movement this am on our walk.ThanksMileta
Type of Animal: 9 lb poodle
Pet's Gender: male
Pet's Age: 5 ? He was a pound pooch
Our regular dog food crushed up, & my husband did try just a little brown rice that was suggested when friends dog had chemo & couldn't keep anything down.
Welcome to JustAnswer! I am a licensed veterinarian and would be glad to help!
Mileta - I would get him to the vet now.
These medications can cause vomiting from not only severe stomach upset / ulceration, but they can cause kidney failure.
If this has been going on for 2 days, please - get to your vet now - for testing (bloodwork) and treatment.
We just spent $700 that we didn't have on a disc going out of place. We really don't have the money for more expense. My husand was out of work for 8 months, we moved, etc. etc.
What do you think they will do as far as treatment? I know it's not good, but am really in a pinch on knowing what to do here at home? Surely there is at least a guess of something I can do here at home!
You can try Antacids for stomach upset (often one is chosen of the 3 choices below):- Famotidine (Pepcid A/C) - LINK HERE (The typical dose administered is 0.25 to 0.5 mg per pound (0.5 to 1.0 mg/kg) every 12 to 24 hours.)- Prilosec OTC (Omeprazole) - LINK HERE (The typical dose administered to animals is 0.25 to 0.5 mg per pound (0.5 to 1.0 mg/kg), every 24 hours or once daily.)- Rantididine (Zantac) - LINK HERE (The typical dose administered to animals is 0.25 to 1 mg per pound (0.5 to 2 mg/kg), every 8 to 12 hours.)
But I would try to get to a vet as soon as possible.
