Yes, I'm here.
No, this is the first question I saw.
I'm sorry, but don't see on the Just Answer website where the ethyl alcohol question is that you are referring to.
Since Piroxicam can cause stomach upset, you can give an over the counter medication (no prescription needed) called Pepcid AC (the generic is famotidine). You could give 20mg once daily. This is an antacid/antinausea medication that is safe and may help prevent stomach upset.
Symptoms of an upset stomach can include decreased appetite, vomiting, stomach gurgling. Some dogs can have a mild upset stomach, but show no outward symptoms.
You can give Pepcid before or after meals (it really doesn't make a difference in this case).
Thank you for saying that and telling me the details. Yes, I certainly do remember discussing things with you before the spay surgery. I'm glad I helped with your decision, and helped to give you peace of mind. I very glad that Bailee is doing well after her surgery! She is lucky to have you as her friend.
