My 18 pound pug/jApenesse...

My 18 pound pug/jApenesse chin dog ate 4 Olive Garden breadsticks Friday night.

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

Aww, I'm sorry Gracie isn't feeling well. I bet they were delicious!

I'd recommend you give her 10mg of pepcid AC (famotidine) twice daily. Also feed some bland food like boiled chicken and rice for a few days. This usually is enough to fix mild GI upset.

If she continues to not eat then obviously see your vet. Glad she is drinking some water.

our pug went blind very suddenly and also has lost some of hearing.She drinks alot and was obsessed with food to the point she would jump on the table as soon as we left to eat anything on there. This stopped after a few weeks. We took her to our vet a few weeks ago telling him she was running into things like fences but saw solid objects fine, after lots of blood work she only showed signs of high cholesterol and had gained about 3 pounds in 2 months. This past sunday she cried out once and then ran into everything both solid and not. She is confused often walks around with no purpose and sometimes has panting spells. He gave us some eye drops confirmed she is perminently blind and has lost some of her hearing.We are to return this wednesday and if she has not improved then he suggested it could be a tumor. Right now if there is not any improvement we may nedd to put her down … read more
