Thank you for your question regarding your girl Coco who managed to eat some coffee grinds from the trash yesterday. As you may have read, coffee can cause all sorts of symptoms in dogs that eat it including anything from an increased heart rate, to restlessness, tremors, or even seizures
If your girl ate this yesterday, then she won't develop any of these symptoms now if she hasn't already. It sounds as though she luckily hasn't eaten enough to cause the worrying symptoms we can sometimes see with the ingestion of coffee grinds. It sounds like she just has a little gastroenteritis now. For this, you can start your girl on a bland diet of cooked, boneless, skinless chicken
breast and boiled white rice for a few days. The pepto bismol may also help potentially. The typical dose is around 0.5ml per pound of body weight twice daily and you can read more about the use of pepto bismol in dogs online here: http://www.petplace.com/drug-library/bismuth-subsalicylate-pepto-bismol-kaopectate/page1.aspx
Hopefully Coco's loose stool settles down in the next day or two. If she starts vomit, develops any new symptoms, or if the diarrhea hasn't improved by Wednesday, you will need to get your girl seen by your local vet. I hope all of the above makes sense? Please let me know if you have any other questions. 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!
