Hello, this is Heather LVT, RVT , I have over 15 years of experience in small animal and emergency vet med. I am happy to assist you today!

JustAnswer always offers a phone call for an additional charge; please feel free to accept or decline as you see fit.

As JustAnswer policy states, due to state law, vets cannot prescribe any medications via the internet without a physical VCPR (vet-client-patient-relationship) so if prescriptions are recommended, you can get these from your family vet.

This sounds like it could be serious. There could be many things going on such as pancreatitis,  I would get your pet in to see the veterinarian as soon as possible. if going to the veterinary clinic is not possible. You can give Metamucil which is a fiber supplement that can help firm up the stool. I would feed boiled chicken and white rice for the next few days. It is a bland diet that can help when they are having GI upset. You can also syringe feed some Pedialyte to help with hydration. You can also give some canned food or chicken baby food to help with appetite if the chicken and rice isn't appetizing. If you don't see improvement of symptoms within 12 to 24 hours, or if symptoms worsen, please take your pet to the closest veterinary hospital.

The emergency would not see her
I wanted her to be seen
They said 8hr wait and would not see her. They said it can be normal but this is not normal for her

I would agree its not normal. you can try the pepcid and see if they can get you in tomorrow.

How much Metamucil and pepcid should I give her
She weighs around 100-120 lbs

60 mg pepcid and about 2 tablespoons of metamucil.

Thank you

you are very welcome and hopeful you can get her seen soon.

We are going to try. The emergency vet said they wouldn't see her because it sounds normal and they have worse off animals that take priority.

I am so sorry about that. I wish I could do more

It's okay, we appreciate all your help.

I wish you the best
