My little Yorkiepoo gets...

My little Yorkiepoo gets upset when my husband goes away and stops eating for a while. Well this time my husband left Friday, he ate some Saturday but then started vomitting. He is vomitting every 4 hours or so, mostly just gastric foamy type stuff. He vomitted last night around midnight and the was ok all night. I gave him a very small amount of shredded chicken this AM which he kept down for a 1 1/2 hrs, then vomitted it all up. I have tramadol for him, got one in him using peanut butter, he kept it down around 1 1/4 hrs the vomitted fo***** *****quid again. I didn’t see the pill in there. My vet isn’t in till tomorrow AM and I ‘m trying to avoid the high price Animal ER. Ivwould appreciate any advice

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

PeeWee

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

His stool is normal and he is voiding. He normally doesn’t drink a lot of water but he is taking small drinks still.

Hello, this is Dr. Sara. Poor little guy. I think you should try some Pepcid AC today. I would recommend that you purchase some Cerenia from your vet so that in the future, you can give Pepcid and Cerenia starting the day before your husband goes away. This "pre-med" should help things stay a little more calm with his belly. What does he weigh?

9 lbs

Alright, you can give 1/2 of a Pepcid AC.

Ok I will get that and give it to him. Should I try to feed him again or just let his stomach rest? I was thinking of a small amount of chicken and white rice.

I would just let his stomach rest today. Try again tomorrow and talk to your vet about the medication Cerenia.
