Perfect. It shouldn't take very long to receive vetting history, but you need this info to know when and what was performed. Without knowing this, the risk of non-vaccination or intestinal parasites being overlooked increases as a risk and we can see that puppies become ill very quickly without such vet care (or with vet care being overdue).
For now, let's assume the peanut butter and kitty delicacies were probably the cause of the bloody diarrhea.
I can give you some steps to take at home to help your companion’s stomach feel better. If you do not see a marked improvement from your pet or you see worsening of symptoms, they absolutely must be examined by a veterinarian.
If you see any vomiting: administer a dose of regular pepcid (famotidine) every 12-24 hours. You will want to give 0.5mg/pound of body weight (a 10# ***** would receive 5mg, a 5# ***** would receive 2.5mg, etc). For this, you can visit any human pharmacy and buy the OTC brand name Pepcid, or you can use the cheaper, off-brand “famotidine” that’s available. Either will be useful.
Without vomiting, you can start with a bland diet. To make this, you’ll combine white or brown rice, boneless, skinless chicken breast and sufficient water for cooking in a stock pot. Boil on medium until it turns to mush and the breast is easily flaked. If your companion requires a more palatable food, try adding in pureed baby food in chicken, turkey and similar flavors. Avoid those that contain onion or garlic in the ingredient panel. Work up to feeding exclusively until at least 3 days following the resolution of the GI upset. After this, work on slowly switching back to the regular food that your companion typically eats.
I’ll be standing by if you have other questions. Let me know if I can help further.
