Customer Question
I fed my dog...

I fed my dog about an hour and a half ago. He now appears to be hiccuping and drooling more than normal. I can also hear his stomach gurgling

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. The Expert will know what to do with the drooling. What is your dog's name and age?

Silas he is around 2.5

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

He has had the hiccups in the past. However in between hiccups he is dry heaving a bit

I am sorry to hear you are worried about Silas. Has he vomited at all?

Dog Veterinarian: Rebecca, Dog Veterinarian replied 3 months ago

You might try giving an acid reducer such as Pepcid AC (famotidine) or Prilosec (omeprazole). How much does he weigh?

Dog Veterinarian: Rebecca, Dog Veterinarian replied 3 months ago

I would not feed him for a few hours, but water in small amounts should be OK.

Customer reply replied 3 months ago
He has not vomited. He is around 60 lbs
Dog Veterinarian: Rebecca, Dog Veterinarian replied 3 months ago

He could take 30 mg of Prilosec/omeprazole or 15 mg Pepcid/famotidine twice daily.
