My Border Terrier mix is having another bout of indigestion.

Customer Question

My Border Terrier mix is having another bout of indigestion. The last visit to his vet suggested I feed him boiled chicken. Lately he has been eating that mixed with Natural Balance small dog kibble and chopped parsley with small bits of steamed carrot. Am I making him sick and what can I do tonight to relieve his discomfort?

Hello, I am afraid that the expert you have requested is not currently available. Still I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you with your wee one today. How old is your lad?How long has he been showing signs?What is he bringing up in his vomit?Can he keep water down?Are his gums nice and pink (not white/pale)? Moist or sticky?If you press on his belly, does he have any tensing, tenderness, discomfort, or pain?Could he have eaten anything he should not have (ie bones, stones, socks, toys, plants, chemicals, human meds, etc)?You asked if you are making him sick, do you mean with his diet?
