Customer Question
6 lb male Yorkie...

6 lb male Yorkie, diarrhea on and off for 4 days. Stomach churning all last night, feaver earlier but with a little asprin he started feeling better. He didn't eat yesterday but ate some today. His stomach is hard and he is in pain. What can we do until we can get him to the vet in the morning?

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?

Giorgio

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Giorgio?

He has had a chiropractor appointment once a week for the past 3 weeks to help with 3 vertebrae that was painful. He seems better in aspect. He is 10 yrs old. Won't eat dog food so I bake chicken most of the time.

Okay good

This is acute gastroenteritis

We can manage this at home

Give Imodium at 0.1 mg/kg three times daily

And Give Pepcid AC 1.0 mg/kg twice daily

NO food tonight

Water, pedialyte and no salt chicken broth are fine to encourage drinking

Update me in two hours time

I will adjust the plan based on response

Okay?

Paul
