Hi!

Dr. Paul Brazzell here

I would be happy to help you :)

Any blood in the vomit or stool?

Still drinking?

No blood barely drinking
Dog Veterinarian: DocPaul, Veterinarian replied 7 months ago

Okay thanks

Lets presume that this is a case of acute gastritis and manage accordingly

Hopefully he will respond

You can try NO salt chicken broth to encourage drinking. Also pedialyte or gatorade.

Do not bother trying to feed tonight

Give Zantac at 1.0 mg/kg by mouth three times a day to settle the stomach

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

Update me in the AM and I will revise the plan depending on how he does tonight

Make sense?
