Customer Question
He threw up...

He threw up earlier then did some diarrhea woot ha small amount of blood and now he is trembling constantly

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'm sorry to hear that. What sort of animal are we talking about?

Yorkie

Veterinarian's Assistant: Maybe I'm confused. I thought you had a problem with a pet. Is that correct?

Dog

Veterinarian's Assistant: Hopefully it didn't make a mess. Did the Yorkie eat anything unusual?

We took a road trip and he ate something that looked like chicken in the back seat which made him throw up

Veterinarian's Assistant: What is the Yorkie's name and age?

Dewie 7

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

His name is dewie

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

He only stops trembling when he is wrapped in a blanket. He hasn't eaten or drank anything all day

Friend, when we see bloody diarrhea this is a sign of inflammation in the large intestines (colon). The vomiting is secondary to what is causing the inflammation. This can be caused by many different medical conditions. I will not be able to pinpoint the exact underlying cause without a hands-on examination and some testing, I am sorry. But, common causes are dietary indiscretion, ingestion of a foreign body, infections, or even part of a systemic disease to name a few causes.

In this case, I would recommend a hands-on examination with your family veterinarian, fecal analysis, blood work and x-rays as an initial screening test. Treatment will be based on exam and test results. In the meantime, this is what you can do:

1- Do not give things like Pepto Bismol or Imodium. Start him on Pepcid AC (famotidine) 10mg 1/8th of a tablet every 12 hours. You can buy Pepcid AC over the counter in any pharmacy.

2- No food or water for 3-4 hours, need to give his gastrointestinal tract time to rest. Then, offer a small amount of water followed by a diet of rice (75%) and boiled boneless chicken or ground beef (25%) until the stool is back to normal then wean him back into his regular diet.

3- Supplement with a probiotic, these are friendly bacterias that help with regularity and inflammation. You can buy this over the counter in any pet store.

4- Follow up with your family veterinarian for a hands on examination as described above. If cost is a concerned I would look into your local ASPCA or Shelter where they often offer veterinary services at a lower cost.

My goal is to provide you with excellent service. If you have any follow-up questions don't hesitate to ask. If finished, please take a moment to rate my service. See you again soon!
