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 your dog, please?

The adverse effect profile for both ketoconazole and cephalexin most often consists of gastrointestinal signs of anorexia, vomiting, and/or diarrhea and so stopping those drugs was smart.

Responding well, ate half meal today after nothing all weekend. Drinking/urination resuming. Still foraging for greens...

Sounds good. Administering an over the counter antacid such as omeprazole (Prilosec) at a dose of 0.25 - 0.5 mg/lb every 24 hours can be comforting. Please continue our conversation if you wish.
