Customer Question
Hello, My dog has a sensitive...
Hello,
My dog has a sensitive tummy. I gave her a little bit of sweet potato yesterday. I'm not sure that is what's making her feel yucky. She threw up 4 times it was watery/ foamy/billious. Her stool had a little mucus as well. I gave her 1ml of Zantac from a previous rx and she threw it up. My question is can I give her Pepcid now even if I have Zantac which she threw up? That's worked well for her before. She weighs about 14lbs.
Kind Regards,
Kathleen Sandoval

Hello, again, Kathleen, I will do my best to help you today. First I need to ask you a few questions so that I can be well informed and give you the best advice.

1- How many milligrams is the Pepcid AC?

2- How old is she?

3- Any pre existing medical conditions?

10 mg of Pepcid. She is 10 years old. Weighs about 14 lbs. I didn't hear back so I gave her the pepcid. Based on her weight I went with guidelines I found on internet search which was 7mg. She was hungry and ate her rice/ lean beef. Hoping no more vomiting after eating that.
Dog Veterinarian: Dr. Peter, Veterinarian replied 10 months ago

Kathleen, I was waiting to hear from you. But, yes, you can use Pepcid AC. If she continues to vomit I would withhold the food and water for 6-8 hours. Continue on Pepcid AC every 12 hours. In addition, I would get her to your family vet for a hands-on examination and some testing to pinpoint the exact underlying cause for the vomiting.

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!

I thought I sent you the info you requested. I guess my response did not go through the first time. This isn't the first time my dog Molly has gone through this. I've taken her a couple of times to her vet in which they ran multiple tests, stool test, xrays, etc. all which would always come back negative. The vet attributed it to long periods of not eating that's why she throws up in the morning, sensitive tummy, stress, etc. She is finicky at times as I have tried multiple dog foods. She also goes through this when I try different foods. Lately, I've only been giving her lean ground beef and white rice. Is there a special type dog food you would recommend so that I don't keep her on ground beef/ rice for so long? Or can she continue with rice/ beef combo long term

You can buy a food that is called i/d by science diet.
