Welcome! My name isXXXXX am a UC Davis graduate, and currently, a Medical Director of a veterinary hospital.
I am sorry to hear about this concern for him. first, bloodwork may have been normal a few weeks ago, but it may be well worth repeating the blood test just as a precaution.
It is possible that the formula of the food is causing the increased thirst.
Another consideration is that there is still some nausea problem. Therefore, it wouldn't hurt at all to do a trial with a antacid just to see if helpful!
To help settle the stomach
you can use of the following, but not as a replacement for veterinary examination include
1.Pepcid A.C. (famotidine
) comes in 10mg, 20mg, or 40mg tablets.
You can give it every 12 hours. You can give 0.5mg per pound of body weight. So, a 20 pound dog would get 10mg.
2.Prilosec (omeprazole). It comes in 10mg or 20mg tablets.
You can give in every 24 hours. You give 0.5mg per pound of body weight. So, a 20 pound dog would get 10mg
3.Zantac (Ranitidne). It comes in 75mg, 150mg, or 300mg sizes.
You can give it every 8 to 12 hours. You give 0.25 to 1mg per pound of body weight. So, a 20 pound dog would get roughly 1/3 tablet of the 75mg. Even with bigger pets, it is easiest to get the smallest size tablet. Even a 75 pound dog would only need one 75mg tablet.
More important then the vet!
More important than anything I say!
Trust your own instincts. If you suspect he is still a bit off, you are probably right and further testing or some additional therapy may be necessary.
