Customer Question
My 13 lbs Shih...

My 13 lbs Shih Tzu just got a hold of some mustard slaw that was sitting on a table. Long story short she wealsed her way up on to the table and ate around 3 tables spoons of it. It was rather spicy so I️ expected her to feel sickly afterwards. She has vomited once but since then she’s just acting sick. I️ am worried about the ingredients of the slaw being toxic to her.

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. Did you see what the dog ate?

Mustard slaw.

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about the dog?

No maam

I have never had mustard slaw so I looked up a recipe. Does this sound about right?

Combine cabbage, onion, and 1 cup carrot in a large bowl. Combine white wine vinegar, sugar, mustard, mayonnaise, salt, black pepper, and red pepper in a small bowl;

None of those ingredients are toxic to her if she just had three tablespoons. If she ate half a cup of onion that would not be good. But she did not eat that much. It is spicy and has new foods for her so it is expected she has an upset stomach like you mentioned.

I would start her on a human over the counter stomach acid reducer like Pepcid Ac 10mg or Zantac 75mg. Give 1/4 of a tablet every 12 hours until Monday.

Put her on a bland diet of plain cooked chicken meat mixed with cooked white rice as well. That is easier to digest than dog food.

Keep her on the bland diet until Monday as well. Then start to mix in her regular food.

Signs she needs to see a vet are:

Not able to keep water down for 12 hours

Not eating for 24 hours

Abdominal pain and tense when you press into her abdomen

Severe lethagy

Watery diarrhea

Blood in the vomit or stool.

Did all of that make sense to you?

Do you have any other questions I may assist you with?
