She has been sneezing...

She has been sneezing and then threw up white milky vomit

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. What sort of animal are we talking about?

A 14 year old Cairn terrier Female

Veterinarian's Assistant: OK. Hopefully it didn't make a mess. Did the cairn terrier eat anything unusual?

No

Veterinarian's Assistant: OK. The Expert will know what to do. What is the cairn terrier's name?

Cammy

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Cammy?

Not especially...she has been pretty healthy. Right now, she is eating, but her appetite is not as good as usualt. Also she seems very lethargic when I walked her this morning

Yesterday she had a fit of sneezing. She vomited then, and vomited again today, but there was no sneezing today
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
No coughing or drainage that I can see

Okay thank you. If she is not sneezing, having nasal drainage, or coughing then it does not sound like viral cold. It sounds like an upset stomach. How much does she weigh?

Actually, she is sneezing right now

Thank you. I would try putting her on an over the counter stomach acid reducer such as 10mg Pepcid AC or 75mg Zantac.

!/2 of a tablet every 12 hours.

Thank you

Maybe this is the early stages of a cold or upper respiratory tract infection. You can monitor her and see how her symptoms progress.

For sneezing you can give one 25mg benadryl tablet every 12 hours. It can be given with the stomach acid reducer.

If she is not sneezing often, I would hold off on the benadryl as it may make her sleepy.

If she does have a cold, the symptoms will progress and most likely you will see nasal drainage and some coughing. Cold usually resolve in 7-10 days.

A tooth root abscess, which is under the gum line so you can not see it, can also cause sneezing with no other symptoms.

Ask Your Own Dog Veterinary Question

If she seems to have an upset stomach, put her on a bland diet of plain cooked chicken and rice. Then when she is back to normal, start to mix in her regular food to the chicken and rice.

How does that plan sound? Do you have any other questions for me right now?
