Dr. Larson :

Hello, I'm sorry to hear that your your dog is not feeling well. To give her a bit of relief, you can try giving her some Pepto Bismol.

Dr. Larson :

The recommended dose for dogs is 1/2 teaspoon per 10 pounds body weight, and can be repeated every 8 hours if needed.

Dr. Larson :

If she is not feeling better in the morning, I would recommend a vet visit to have her checked out.

I had some prescription medacine, from a previous visit. I gave my dog 25 mg of Tramadol. I also gave my dog 1 anti biotic. I was up with her until 11:00 Friday night.I took my dog into the vets Sat morning at 5:30am.I waited for hours for an opening. I finally got my dog into see the vet.The vet determined that my dog had soft tissue damage. I had looped my dogs leash through the tree branches and let her lay down in the shade while I mowed the grass. A groud hog pops his head up out of a pipe in the drainage ditch. It was determined that my dog launched herself after the groung hog and when the leash pulled her up short she strained her back. I was able to figure this out over the next couple of days when I saw the ground hog by the apple tree. I was relieved that my dog was not poinsioned by the Chicken Strips and she seems to be fine and pulling me up and down the fields and woods like usual.
