Customer Question
My dog ate several...

My dog ate several pieces of chicken and potatoes seasoned with grill mates chicken seasoning and the number one ingredient is garlic. She doesn’t want her normal treats and her eyes are red and she was dry heaving just now. She ate this a few hours ago. What to do?

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. The Expert will know if your dog will be able to digest that. What is your dog's name and age?

Her name is ***** ***** she is 13. She weighs about 25 pounds.

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Diggy?

She suffers from arthritis, is urinarily incontinent. She is on Proin daily.

Hello, this is Dr. Schmidt. Thank you for using JustAnswer. It is possible that something in the seasoning did not agree with her such as the garlic. I would recommend starting her on an antacid tonight such as Pepcid (0. 25mg/lb). This will help with the dry heaving. I would feed her boiled white meat chicken breast and white rice in the morning as a bland diet. If she isn't back to normal by Monday, I would take her in to the vet for a check up.
