Ask a dog vet and get answers to your dog health questions
Hello. I am sorry your pet is having problems. There are several possibilities for your dog’s symptoms. The most common cause is a dietary indiscretion, meaning they ate something bad and now they have an upset stomach. The only way to know what is causing your pet’s symptoms is to take them to the vet and have tests run. Take your pet to the vet today if you can.
If you can’t, let your dog go 12 hours without eating to let the stomach settle. Give Omeprazole (Prilosec) or Famotidine (Pepcid) for vomiting/nausea once a day. Tell me your dog’s weight and I will give you a dose. Wait an hour after that and then give 1 cup of Pedialyte/Gatorade/Chicken Broth once every 8 hours orally with a bulb syringe.
After 12 hours, offer your pet a bland diet consisting of boiled chicken breast and rice for 3-5 days. Do not add any seasonings or oil to the chicken and rice. Also, you can add a tablespoon of plain yogurt. Then gradually reintroduce your pet's regular food. If your dog won't eat after 12 hours of fasting, try to spoon-feed pureed chicken breast and rice, plain yogurt, or baby food. If those things don't help, let me know or go to a vet. Any questions?
