Hello, my name is***** and I have over 20 years of experience as a veterinarian. I am sorry to hear that your pup isn't feeling well. I want to be clear on what happened.

My understanding is that your pup got into and ingested something she didn't need, a medicine for diarrhea, and then vomited but is still not feeling herself. Is that correct?

I have some questions about this chain of events.

  1. How much does she weigh?
  2. What medication did she ingest?
  3. What size were the pills (milligrams) and how many did she eat?
  4. How long after eating them did she vomit?
  5. Did she seem to clear her stomach or only vomit a little?
  6. Was the medication seen in the vomit?
  7. How long ago was this?
  8. What is she doing that indicates she isn't right?
  9. Is she eating and drinking for you?

I'm sorry for all of the questions but they will help me determine what should be done for her now.
