Buddy, he is 5

Buddy

Hi.

Dr. Paul Brazzell here.

Happy Thanksgiving!

I am a little concerned here as you are no doubt.

This may be a simple case of acute gastritis or we could be dealing with pancreatitis or toxic bowel syndrome, inflammatory bowel disease or even Addison's disease.

:Lets try some simple things first and then re-evaluate.

NO food for the rest of the day- I know he is not eating

Offer water in only small amounts at one time

Buy some Zantac (Ranitidine) and give 1.0 mg/kg three times a day

Update me in two to three hours.

IF he continues to vomit andis unable to keep water down then he needs to go to the ER. WE cannot take a chance on dehydration and other more serious complications. They will check his blood and urine and x-ray or ultrasound his abdomen.

IF he settles down and and can keep water down then we will continue to nurse him at home

Okay?
Paul

I would like a refund. Your website stated there was a $5 refundable deposit, and I was okay with that, but then it wanted a monthly fee and I was not okay with that. At that point I chose to cancel the transaction, and now I find that you billed me $19 ,after I cancelled.

Good morning

I dont have anything to do with the billing

I just try and help people who post problems with their pets.

How is Buddy this morning?

Paul
