Ask a Dog Vet and Get Answers to Your Dog Health Questions
Hello. My name is***** am happy to help you with your question. Give me just a moment to respond and type.
Is she drinking? Can she keep water down?
If she can not keep anything down over the counter medications will not help because she would not be able to keep them down. In that case she would need to see the vet for an injection to stop the vomiting.
If she can keep fluids down then I would buy some 10mg Pepcid Ac tablets and a syringe. Crush 1/4 of the tablet and mix it with a little water. Then give it with a syringe. Pepcid is an over the counter human stomach acid reducer but we use it in dogs as well.
You can help her maintain hydration with your syringe and children's pedialyte drink. Put about a teaspoon in the syringe and give it to her every other hour until the vomiting has stopped.
To help keep her blood sugar up, since she is not eating, you can rub honey, karo syrup, or pancake syrup on her gums every 3-4 hours.
Most likely she has not had a bowel movement because her gastrointestinal tract is empty from all the vomiting.
Did all of that make sense to you? Do you have any other questions?
