Expert's Assistant chatimg
Customer: Hi, my 24 lbs mini schnauzer ate a plate of carbonara with garlic, while my 14 lbs had a teaspoon of the bacon from carbonara. I just saw that garlic is poisonous to dogs. Will both my dogs be ok after?
JA: Hi there. I'll do all I can to help. Has the Schnauzer vomited since ingesting the garlic?
Customer: the 24lbs has lvl 2 murmur while the 14lbs has lvl 4 murmur. The only medication they’re taking is for lice, which we only give them when they start scratching
JA: Is there anything else the Vet should know before I connect you? Rest assured that they'll be able to help you.
Customer: None of them vomited

Welcome to Justanswer! I am Dr. Altman and happy to assist you today! Please give me a few moments to respond and I will be back momentarily!

Luckily there will not be enough bacon nor garlic to harm your two dogs with this amount

Today monitor for vomiting, diarrhea, lethargy, reduced appetite take a few precautions if gi upset is seen:

- Pepcid (famotidine) 0.25 mg per pound every 12 hours for 3 days

- Leash walks to help any gi upset or nausea pass more readily of >15 minutes

- Next meal should be a bland diet of white rice and lean boiled meat such as chicken in small more frequent meals but waiting at least 12 hours after vomiting has subsided if there is this symptom

Please let me know if you have any additional questions I can assist with or clarify

THANK YOU SO MUCH for the direct answer and clear instruction!!!!!!

You're very welcome, best wishes to you all

Hi again, I'm in the grocery store looking for pepcid, can I give my dogs peptobismol instead? If so, what would be the dosage?

No pepto please, it turns the stool black confusing with gi bleed and isn't very effective. Pepcid or famotidine is widely available and is preferred. Or omeprazole (prilosec)

Ok. I calculated that for my 24 lbs schnauzer I have to give him 600mg of pepcid and 350mg for my 14lbs. Is that correct? Also, I'm reading the drug facts of pepcid complete dual action chewable tablet but I'm confused how many tablets I should give each.

Um that is not correct, it would be 1/2 of a 10 mg formula

Just famotidine not the "plus" formula you have

I found omeprazole instead 20mg.

So 1/2 tab daily for 3 days

Customer attachment 10/24/2021 10:45:57 PM

Yep that's fine

For both 24lbs and 14lbs?

1/4 tab for the 14 pound dog

Ok, thank you so much for the responses Dr Altman

You're welcome
