He doing alright this morning he Chihuahua and shihtzu mix and he ate and he's drinking a lot of water he eats a little not a lots and he not vomiting or diarrhea
Dog Specialist: Sally G., Dog Training Consultant replied 6 months ago

Thank you for that information. There may be some stomach upset from a virus or something he did eat that he should not have. If you feed any human food , that can cause problems such as gas.

the fact that he is drinking lots of water would be concerning for a possible urinary tract infection, so I would keep an eye on water intake for a while. Measure the water you put in so you know how much he drinks. Monitor urine out put as well, if he seems to need to go out more often then I would drop off a sample of urine to the Vet for testing.

I might try a bland diet of boiled chicken and cooked white rice to settle the stomach.

You can also give a pepcid ac and see if that helps. I will direct you a link for dosing.
