I am sorry to hear you are concerned about Tucker. How long has he had vomiting and diarrhea?

Is eh eating?

Customer reply replied 3 months ago
For 3 or 4 days and he is eating. It is not continuous - like here and there. He has made a mess everywhere.

If he is eating, he may not be seriously ill. There are dozens of conditions that can cause a dog to vomit and have diarrhea: infections, parasites, something he ate, etc.

You can try treat his vomiting with Pepcid AC; how much does he weigh?

Ask Your Own Dog Veterinary Question

I am so sorry but I can't make calls for the website. That offer did not come from me.

Customer reply replied 3 months ago
He weighs about 12 lbs

He could take 2.5 mg (1/4th of a 10 mg) Pepcid AC (famotidine) for vomiting.

Ask Your Own Dog Veterinary Question

If the vomiting and diarrhea persist, I might consider an Xray.

Ok. I will try the Pepcid AC. Anything else I can do. What should I feed him? Someone told me white rice - I am not sure if dogs are allowed to have that

White rice and boiled chicken are a good bland diet.

Ask Your Own Dog Veterinary Question

Feed him lightly until the diarrhea slows down. You can try 1/2 to 1 teaspoon of Pepto Bismal for diarrhea.

I can give him both Pepto Bismol and Pepcid AC

Thank you for the great rating! Please let me know how he is doing.

I would start with the Pepcid AC til the vomiting slows, then try the Pepto.
