Frances, when we see yellow stool it could be a sign of the gastrointestinal tract being over active. When see vomiting of undigested food it is called "regurgitation" as the food has not been digested. Possible causes could be esophagus disorders (megaesophagus, strictures, parasites), gastritis, ingestion of a foreign body, etc. to name a few causes. In this case, the first place to start would be giving the gastrointestinal tract some time to rest. This is what you can do:1- Do not give things like Pepto Bismol or imodium. Start him on Zantac (ranitidine) 75mg 1/2 tablet every 12 hours for the next 2-3 days. You can buy Zantac over the counter in any pharmacy (chemist). 2- No food or water for 8-12 hours. Need to give his gastrointestinal tract time to rest. 3- After 8-12 hours offer a small amount of water. Wait half hour, if no vomiting, offer small amount of rice (50%) and boiled boneless chicken or ground beef (50%) 4-6 times a day. Keep on this diet for several days then wean him into his regular diet. 4- If he continues to regurgitate, yellow stool or develops diarrhea after doing the above he will need to be seen by your family veterinarian for a hands on examination.My goal is to provide you with excellent service, I am happy to address follow-up questions.
