does to eat not want to eat or drink but every thing else is fine

Okay I wonder if this is acute gastritis- hopefully that is all it is

Of course at ten we have to consider pancreatitis and kidney/liver disease etc etc

But lets try Zantac at 1.0 mg/kg three times a day for a few days

No food till later tonight

Water is fine

Can also offer pedialyte and no salt chicken broth

You should update me later today

Are you able to get the Zantac and pedialyte?

Paul

not zantac until 6 pm I don't know if the dose is normal

Zantac at 1.0 mg/kg is the right dose

How much does your dog weigh?

Paul
