Welcome and thanks for asking your question. My name isXXXXX am a licensed veterinarian. I am happy to answer your question today. First I need to ask you a few questions to be well informed and give you the best advice.

1- Any vomiting, diarrhea or coughing?

I have been fortunate because Molly McGee was given 10 Months to live. That was 1 year ago in October. She is very well taken care of by my two Vets. I am spending $3 to 500. a month on her med's.& office visits My Dr's are great but as you can guess I am spending more than I can afford. That's why I am asking you for a little advise - and not taking her in right away--- Unless you tell me that I should. I was thinking of Tums for the tummy, but am aware that could be a big mistake. Can you lead me in the right direction?

Friend, certainly eating 2 slices of pizza can cause her to not feel well. But, the fact that she has a history of heart disease we can not over look this important aspect. I would recommend you start her on Pepcid AC (famotidine) 10mg 1/2 tablet every 12 hours for the next couple of days. You can buy pepcid ac over the counter in any pharmacy. If she is not eating by tomorrow after starting the pepcid ac I would definitely have her re-checked by family veterinarian for a hands on examination.

My goal is to provide you with excellent service – if you feel you have gotten anything less, please reply back. I am happy to address follow-up questions. Thank you for your business and I hope to work with you again soon!
