Hello, this is Dr. Sara. When did she start having these symptoms? Is the blood in the stool black or red and is she having diarrhea also? Anything new to eat or chew up any toys lately?

Alright, as long as she does not seem alarmingly depressed, let's do this for tonight. Pull up the food and water, I am going to have you give her an antacid and an immodium for tonight. What does she weigh and what meds do you have at home for people belly problems?

Tums, Nexium
Dog Veterinarian: Dr. Sara, Veterinarian replied 7 months ago

She has probably had some urgency with BM's for a couple days. What is the mg on the Nexium? And are you able to get out for some immodium?

Dog Veterinarian: Dr. Sara, Veterinarian replied 7 months ago

Customer reply replied 7 months ago
don't know for sure
Dog Veterinarian: Dr. Sara, Veterinarian replied 7 months ago

I think the typical milligram is 40mg, but I just want to make sure. Can you look on the box?

did you find it?

Customer reply replied 7 months ago
it is
Dog Veterinarian: Dr. Sara, Veterinarian replied 7 months ago

Alright, she can have a whole capsule tonight. Do the Nexium first and wait about an hour before giving the immodium. No more food or water tonight. If she is still feeling yucky tomorrow am, she will have to see her vet. Hope everything goes well. Have a good night and let me know if I can help with anything else.
