Hello, this is Dr. Schmidt. Thank you for using JustAnswer. What all have you tried feeding so far and what medications is your pup taking?

The bland can food my vet sent home. Also tried a little lunch meat earlier today but she won't eat that either. She's also still sleeping alot. As far as the medications, cerrinia(?), something that starts with s for diarreah(twice daily) and something that starts with an m that I'm supposed to give her a half hour before food or medicine to help the lining of her stomach and aid in the absorption of the meds and/or nutrients. How soon before she is "out of the woods"?
Dog Specialist: Dr. Schmidt, Veterinarian replied 6 months ago
You can add in a little antacid, Pepcid (0.25mg/lb) every 12 hours as they usually have some nausea for several days. I would also try feeding boiled chicken and white rice as that might entice her to eat having some warm chicken and rice to eat and it is good for her GI tract. As far as how long it should take her to be out of the woods, it really varies from dog to dog, but usually after about a week of treatment, they are back on track in most cases.
