Ask a Dog Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Welcome! I am Dr. Altman, a licensed veterinarian and I am happy to answer your questions.
So sorry to hear Billie is having issues today
Is she dribbling urine or saliva?
OK, is she attempting to vomit as well, dry retching?
All water? What type of dog is Billie?
The increased salivation is an indication she is still nauseous. Is her abdomen swollen at all?
OK good, hopefully it is just the nausea that is causing her to be uncomfortable. Can you please tell me her gum color?
So is she able to rest now? Able to lay down?
Do you have any antacids at home, such as pepcid (famotidine) or prilosec (omeprazole)?
That is a huge relief
Perhaps her stomach overfilled with the water which can occur and I have had my own personal dog do this on occasion
Today minimize activity the rest of the day as a precaution
And dinner reduced to small increments of white rice and boiled chicken (1 tbsp hourly at first) to test the stomach
If she is holding it down then increase the volume while reducing the frequency but if the vomiting recurs no more food tonight
And water only in moderation
But wait a good 6 hours before her next meal as a precaution
Can I assist with any additional questions or clarify anything today?
Perfect, good luck to you and Billie
I hope this resolves quickly for you both!
