Reply to Gina's Post: No blood in stool, She has some appetite, but not usual,she is acting a little sluggish this AM..She's embarrassed.
Pet Specialist: Gina, Animal Care Specialist replied 12 years ago
The first thing I am going to suggest is the obvious, try to keep her away from the mulch.

Keep her hydrated. You can add some plain pedialyte to her drinking water or you can offer it by the dropper full. This is very important.

Feed her a bland diet of boiled chicken (no skin, no bones, no seasonings) and rice for a few meals. This is called a bland diet and will help settle her stomach.

If you see her acting more lethargic or any other symptoms arise like vomiting or fever or bloody diarrhea, please seek veterinary care as soon as you can. These are signs of an intestinal blockage or poisoning.

I hope this helps and that your girl is her normal Scooby self quickly :) If you found this information helpful, please remember to click the green accept button :)

What Customers are Saying:

I must tell you I found this site by accident and was amazed when I asked a question of the Veteranians online. I wish I could have found it sooner it could have made such a difference in the outcome of my pet's surgery. However, I am passing along the information to my sister-in-law (a cat-rescue person who is also a nurse), and perhaps it will help someone else who may experience the same problem. The doctor who answered my question was amazing, and while it didn't come it time to change the outcome of my situation, it is reassuring to know the caliber of Vets/Doctors that you have at JustAnswer. Thank you for being there.
