Ask a Dog Vet and Get Answers to Your Dog Health Questions
Hello! I am Dr. Pulter, I am going to help you with your question today. You are wondering if your beagles could be sick from something because they are both acting strange. Please tell me everything they have eaten, that you know about in the last 24-48h before they got sick.
Sometimes in dogs new treats could cause an upset stomach. You can try boiled chicken breast and rice as a bland diet for now. If you are going to give them any kind of electrolyte fluid - non-flavored pedialyte is best. Are your girls not drinking either? Any loose stool?
The only way to check for fever is to use a rectal thermometer. A dogs temperature should range between 99.8 to 102.5. 102.5 if they are especially anxious. This is what you should do tonight, go out to your backyard and look around for anything they could have chewed on or eaten, and then check their stools. If anything is out of sorts or worrysome, they will need to examined tonight. I think regardless if they are still acting this way tomorrow then they need to be examined by their vet. Only a physical can tell if something more is wrong that needs to be explored further.
You are very welcome!
Let me know how they are doing tomorrow.
