Customer Question
My king Charles spaniel...

My king Charles spaniel ate 5 times his normal food

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?

Teddy and he is 6 years old

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Teddy?

No. his stomach is hard and he is uncomfortable. He normally eats 1/4 cup and he ate 1 and 3/4 cups

I'm sorry that your question wasn't answered in a timely manner. Please let me know if you still need help. May I have an update on Teddy, please? In general, gluttony is treated by not doing; in otherwords, my patient is fasted for 24 hours. If gastrointestinal distress is noted in the form of regurgitation, vomiting, or diarrhea, an over the counter antacid such as famotidine (Pepcid) dosed at 0.25 mg per pound once should afford Teddy some comfort.
