My dog ate a friends rawhide. I never give them to him. Today his stool is bloody and mucas. He hasn't eaten all day. But he is acting fine. Do I need to take him to the vet or watch him for one more day?

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'm sorry to hear that. The Expert will know if your dog will be able to digest that. What is the dog's name and age?

Paddy he is 11.5

Veterinarian's Assistant: What is the dog's name?

Paddy

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Paddy?

He is on enapril and has allergies to chicken. But he is otherwise in excellent shape. He went for a long walk yesterday and played harder than he has in about 6 months with a younger dog. He does have a sensitive stomach

I am sorry to hear Paddy is having this problem.

It is most likely a bad upset stomach from the rawhide.

Is he vomiting at all? Does he seem painful?

No, he is not vomiting and he does not seem painful.

That is good news. This is likely just a bad gastroenteritis. It will take a little time to improve.

You can give a single 2mg Loperamide (immodium) tablet to stop the diarrhea. I would get him started on omeprazole 20mg once a day to help with upset stomach. I would also get him on some fiber such as canned pumpkin about 1/4-1/2 a can twice a day. This should help get things under control. If he starts vomiting, I would take him to the vet to get checked out. Give him his normal food and no other foods at this time.

I would also rest him for a few days, no vigorous activity, just small short walks to urinate and defecate until he is doing better.

Thank you, ***** ***** good to know. Can I give him pepcid AC? I am not sure what omerprazole is...

omeprazole is prilosec. You can give either that or pepcid AC. I would give 10mg of pepcid AC twice daily if you have that. It is also a little bit cheaper than prilosec.
