My german shepherd threw up and has diarrea and is whining constantly. She keeps licking at her butt.

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. Hopefully it didn't make a mess. Did your dog eat anything unusual?

Oh yes, but that is what you have to deal with when they are sick.

Veterinarian's Assistant: What is your dog's name and age?

Her name is ***** ***** she is 7 and no i dont believe she ate annything bad

Hi, Dr. W here, I'm sorry to hear about this with Kaiawah. If the vomiting and diarrhea persist longer than 24 hours, she should be seen by her vet for fluids and electrolytes and medications to stop the vomiting and diarrhea. In the mean time you can help by offering Pedialyte for hydration and electrolyte balance and some canned pumpkin to help settle his stomach. You can also give Pepcid (0.25 mg/lb) every 12 hours for the next few days. It is an antacid that can help decrease the acidity in the stomach. I would feed boiled chicken and white rice for the next 24 hours. It is a bland diet that can help while the stomach is getting back to normal.
