Customer Question
About 9 1/2 hours...

About 9 1/2 hours ago my dog got into her food bag. She didn't eat a whole lot, but enough to make her belly swelll a little bit. She has been thirsty. She is 55lbs and a Cur. She threw up successfully about 20 minutes ago and she has had a normal bowel movement a few hours after she ate the 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?

Her name is ***** ***** she is 4 1/2 years old

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

She isn't panting and her gums are pink.

Hello and thank you for using this site to help you. I am sorry your question was not picked up sooner.

Over eating can cause gastrointestinal upset and if she vomited that would make her thirsty.

I would make sure she has plenty of fresh water to drink.

I might fast her for 24 hours then start a bland diet of boiled chicken and cooked white rice. Then start her dog food the next day.

You can also try giving her a pepcid AC for stomach upset and I will direct you to a link for dosing and precautions.
