Anytime that we give a new treats or food source, we risk vomiting and diarrhea (especially in the small breed dogs, those with tender tummies or those who are young). It would not hurt to pull up food and water for a few hours and give a dose of famotidine (pepcid) to help calm his stomach. The dosage is 0.5mg/pound. A 5 pound dog would receive 2.5mg every 12-24 hours, a 10# ***** would receive 5mg every 12-24 hours, etc. This can help settle the stomach. 2 hours following administration, if he has not vomited, start by offering a small amount of his regular food and water. Repeat this every 2 hours for at least 12 hours. If you get through the 12 hours following, he should be well enough to go back to regular food and water intervals. However, if the vomiting persists, you will need to have him examined by your vet and medication started to stop the vomiting. The whining at his back end may be suggestive that he's going to have some diarrhea to follow this ingestion. It can also mean that he's having difficulty with his anal glands. If it does not stop by the time the vomiting has resided, it would be worth having his glands checked by your vet. There's typically a nominal ($20 or so) charge to have these checked and emptied. This is normal, routine maintenance on a dog and many dogs will need their glands checked and expressed every 1-6 months throughout the course of their life. Once you're satisfied with our dialogue, please take the time to issue a rating for me so that I am compensated for helping you today. Best of luck!
