Get Your Dog Care Questions Answered by Experts
Hi I'm Dr. Carole and I'm sorry to hear about your parents dog. This doesn't sound good. If the internal bleeding is not managed then continued blood loss can lead to severe complications including shock from severe anemia. The dog will be very listless and unwilling to eat. May vomit and continue to have tarry diarrhea. If he wants to eat feed a bland diet of boiled chicken or hamburger and white rice or cottage cheese. You can start giving omeprazole (prilosec) 30 mg daily. This can be obtained over the counter. May help with the bleeding ulcer and appetite. Unfortunately the motrin can also cause kidney failure and with the lymphoma I'm really worried he is not going to last very long. I'm so sorry.
