I am DrD , sorry to hear that Luna is having a gastro intestinal problem.What is her regular food ?
Can you please tell me about the vomiting and diarrhea a bit more ?
What does she vomit ? Color of the ingredients of the vomited material ?
Is she on any medication ? How long ago did this started ?
Is the diarrhea large amount at once or small amounts and often with/ without mucus and / or blood on it ? The color of her stool ?
Sweet potato .... Hmmm , this could have helped unless the problem is not as serious. Do not want to scare you though. Please answer my above questions.
Thank you. I am sorry but I am not in the position of taking a phone call.
I am a bit confused now with your latest comments. Please forgive me asking you again:
Does the diarrhea ( runny stool ) still exists ?
IS she still vomiting ?
Or the both stopped ?
Here is some information for you : This is for colitis . Large bowel diarrhea . Symptoms are : Small amount and often soft stool .The dog may strain to defecate. Vomiting can be seen .
A pet that has sudden symptoms of colitis probably has a stress-related colitis (common after boarding, moving, severe weather or other change) or a dietary indiscretion-related colitis (usually involves treats or raiding the garbage). These episodes are generally minor and can be cleared with a short course of medication such as metronidazole or sulfasalazine and/or dietary therapy. Parasites, especially Giardia and whipworms, can also cause colitis and the pet may be tested for those to rule them out. In general, a few days of medication and a bland diet should resolve the problem and the pet will be back to normal quickly. During recovery, it is common for the pet to have no stool at all for a couple of days. This is normal and not a sign of constipation. If, however, the pet's diarrhea is not clearly improved in two to three days, contact the veterinarian to see if further testing is needed.
Diarrhea is the frequent evacuation of watery stools. Vomiting is the forceful expulsion of stomach contents through the mouth.
What to Do
What NOT to Do
Vomiting and diarrhea are associated with a host of problems that are referred to collectively as gastroenteritis. Some cases are quite severe (e.g., poisoning), and some are not (e.g., dietary indiscretion). If fever is present, infection may be a cause. Most infections that cause diarrhea and vomiting are contagious, so it is wise to assume that other pets might be vulnerable if they are exposed.
If your pet is not feeling well and has vomiting and/or diarrhea, see a veterinarian.
I hope this helps . If you have more to ask please come back and ask. Thank you.
