The benedryl was given only once
Dog Veterinarian: Dr. B., Veterinarian replied 2 years ago
Thank you,
We can see residual nausea secondary to the wasp stings and when Benadryl is given in some dogs. So, either is a consideration here and a trigger for this nausea cycle he is caught in. Therefore, further to the light diet you are offering (which is perfect but you could also add in some boiled chicken, white fish, scrambled egg, or cottage cheese as a protein source), I would suggest starting him on an antacid for the next few days to see if we can break that nausea cycle for him. There are a number of antacids that are available over the counter and pet friendly. I would advise only treating with one, but the two I tend to recommend are Pepcid ( More Info/Dose: http://www.petplace.com/drug-library/famotidine-pepcid/page1.aspx) or Zantac (More Info/Dose: http://www.petplace.com/drug-library/ranitidine-hcl-zantac/page1.aspx). This medication of course shouldn’t be given without consulting your vet if he does have any pre-existing conditions or is on any other medications. Ideally, it should be given about 30 minutes before food to ease his upset stomach. And if he is mostly heaving in the morning, do give this +/- a small snack at bed time to keep his stomach soothed in the morning.
I hope this information is helpful.
If you need any additional information, do not hesitate to ask!
All the best, *****

How many times should i give him the pepcid in the morning only?
Dog Veterinarian: Dr. B., Veterinarian replied 2 years ago
Hi again,
You can start giving it in the morning or at bed time. But if need be, it can safely be given up to every 8 hours.
All the best,
Dr. B.

A whole tablet they usually come in flavors is that ok .he's 21 lb
Dog Veterinarian: Dr. B., Veterinarian replied 2 years ago
Hi again,
Flavors don't matter as long as there is no xylitol in the tablet. The dose is weight and tablet strength based, as you will have seen from the link I provided above. Therefore, a 21lb dog can have 5-10.5mg at each dosing. That could translate into a whole tablet if it was a 10mg one but half it is a 20mg one.
Take care,
Dr. B.

Dog Veterinarian: Dr. B., Veterinarian replied 2 years ago
Hi again,
Pepcid would be better, but you could use the Tumms for the short term (60-120mg every 8 hours)
Take care,
Dr. B.
