Customer Question
Hey I talked to you...
Hey I talked to you earlier about my dog, hutch, who seems to have an upset stomach, and we agreed to just let him sleep. Well he woke up and now he’s breathing hard, panting, and his stomach is making weird noises. He did stop shaking though. Is this still common for upset stomach? Thanks

I talked to another vet on here, sorry for the confusion. To update the vet I will be talking to, my dog has been shaking and had slight diarrhea. He fell asleep and quit shaking. That’s when we ended the conversation. We agreed it was just an upset stomach. Then my dog woke up and that’s when I wrote the above question.

I'm sorry that your question wasn't answered in a timely manner. Please let me know if you still need help. May I have an update on Hutch, please?

This morning he seems to be doin a lot better. I noticed he hadn’t ate a whole lot yesterday, but he finally got to eating this morning. Still acts a little weak. Last night it was hard for him to stand up. But he’s a lot more active this morning and chewing on his bone.
Customer reply replied 6 months ago
I’m mainly concerned because we will be boarding him for a week starting Saturday
Dog Veterinarian: Dr. Michael Salkin, Veterinarian replied 6 months ago

Thank you for the good update. His symptoms while important weren't pathognomonic (specifically indicative) of any one particular disorder. I would continue to monitor him and make sure that you give permission to the kennel to have Hutch attended to by his vet if need be. Please continue our conversation if you wish.

His symptoms were shaking/shivering, diarrhea, his stomach was making a lot of odd noises, he acted like he was thirsty, and eventually he quit shaking but then started panting. This morning he’s not doin any of that except just acting a little weaker than usual.
Dog Veterinarian: Dr. Michael Salkin, Veterinarian replied 6 months ago

Thank you. ***** reviewed your earlier conversation. He appears to be normalizing. It doesn't surprise me that he's still showing signs (weakness) as it can take 72 hours for dogs to fully recover from even a simple dietary indiscretion.

Thank you. I will tell kennel to keep an eye on him
Dog Veterinarian: Dr. Michael Salkin, Veterinarian replied 6 months ago

You're quite welcome. I can't set a follow-up in this venue so please return to our conversation - even after rating - with an update at your convenience. You can bookmark this page for ease of return.
