Aloha! You're speaking with Dr. Michael Salkin
I'm sorry that your question wasn't answered in a timely manner and I regret that I'm not allowed to correspond with customers by phone. Please let me know if you still need help. Kasey's symptoms are important but not pathognomonic (specifically indicative) of any one disorder and so it's difficult for me to prognosticate at this time. In general, minor GI distress due to a dietary indiscretion - eating something new, inappropriate, spoiled, or perhaps a non-food item - usually remisses within 36 hours unaided. Fasting such a patient for up to 12 hours might suffice. Dogs that don't remiss in that time frame should be attended to by their vet who will perform a thorough physical exam including diagnostics in the form of blood and urine tests +/- X-rays or ultrasound of the abdomen.
Please give me an update on Kasey if you wish.
