Ask a Dog Vet and Get Answers to Your Dog Health Questions
Hello. Thanks for writing in. My name is***** and I would be happy to help you. If I am not mistaken, it sounds like you may be concerned about a gastrointestinal obstruction. I would be at this point. She may have had a partial obstruction that got worse. I would check her gums ans press into her abdomen from both sides at the same time. If her gums are pale or brick red, or if her abdomen seems painful, uncomfortable or enlarged; I would get her evaluate by a vet immediately. I am not sure what breed of dog she is, but the bigger, the more concern about bloat. The problem is that there are not many OTC medications you can safely give to dogs for vomiting without knowing exactly what is happening. Pepcid (5mg per 10lbs of body weight daily) would be the only one. There are some cases that I would not even want to give Pepto Bismol for. One would be a potential stomach ulcer. Usually 1 teaspoon per 20 lbs every 6-8 hours would suffice, but if she really seems in pain, I would probably just avoid it and have her evaluated by your nearest emergency vet tonight. A big concern would be perforation of her intestinal tract by the chicken bone. Please let me know if you have any other questions or concerns. Hope this helps.
