My dog is very restless, licking her lips a bit and panting. She is not eating and had diarrhea earlier today. Can I give her Pepcid AC? She has congestive heartfailure and is on Lasix/Furosememide, Enalapril and Vetmedin. I haven't given her the evening dose of Vetmedin

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'm sorry to hear that. What is the dog's name and age?

Madame and is 8 years and 7 months old

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Madame?

She is 12 pounds

Yes, 1 think 1/4 of a 10 mg pepcid ac tablet would be fine.

To help keep her blood sugar up rub some honey or karo syrup on her gums.

If her gum are dry to the touch she may be dehydrated. In that case buy some childrens pedialyte drink and give that with a syringe or eye dropper every hour until her gums are moist. You can find all that at walmart if other stores are closed where you live.

No food while she is nauseous. She can have water if she keeps it down.
