Hi.

Dr. Paul Brazzell here

How long has this been going on for?

Any chance he ate something he should not have?

I'm not sure.
Dog Veterinarian: DocPaul, Veterinarian replied 7 months ago

Okay

Is he still drinking water?
How are his spirits?

Gums pink?

Breathing rate?

Dog Veterinarian: DocPaul, Veterinarian replied 7 months ago

Sorry about the BOTS- very annoying

Okay so assuming his spirits are still good and those other parameters are normal here is what we will do:

NO food till tomorrow afternoon

Water, pedialyte, gatorade or no salt chicken broth are fine

Give Imodium at 0.1 mg/kg by mouth three times a day

Give Zantac 1.0 mg/kg three times a day by mouth

IF continues to vomit he needs to be examined- we have to worry about pancreatitis, Addison's disease and other metabolic problems

IF settles down then we can start cooked hamburger and rice tomorrow afternoon

Please update me in the AM

Okay?

Paul
