My dog ate a bag of treats and now she is throwing up and has diarrhea

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. The Expert will know if your dog will be able to digest that. What is your dog's name and age?

Brynnlee and she is 6 months

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Brynnlee?

She has never liked eating. Ever since she was 5 weeks old. I have had to sit there and make her way every meal. Except now she won’t eat at all. For the past couple of weeks it’s been hard to get her to eat. Probably just because she is so active she only eats when she’s wants. Now after she has been sick last night and today, she won’t eat at all

Friend, it is common for her to vomit and get diarrhea if she ate a bag of treats. This is what you can do:

1- Do not give things like Pepto Bismol or Imodium. Start her on Pepcid AC (famotidine) 10mg 1/2 tablet every 12 hours for the next 2-3 days. You can buy Pepcid AC over the counter in any pharmacy.

2- No food or water for 6-8 hours. Need to give her gastrointestinal tract time to rest.

3- After 6-8 hours offer a small amount of water. Wait half hour, if no vomiting, offer a small amount of rice (50%) and boiled boneless chicken or ground beef (50%) 4-6 times a day. Keep on this diet for several days then wean into regular diet.

4- If she continues to vomit after doing the above she will need to be seen by your family veterinarian for a hands on examination.

My goal is to provide you with excellent service - I hope I've provided the information you were seeking, if you feel you have received anything less, please reply back as I am happy to address follow-up questions. Kindly rate me when you are done.
