    Dog is Sick

    I have a dog who is sick he is throwing up and has the runs is there anything I can do or give him before having to take him to the vet. I am willing to try anything that might work at this point.

    Try giving him some Pepto-Bismol, or Imodium AD...it works.

    I don't know about Immodium for dogs, especially if he has eaten something that he needs to expel. Immodium will stop that process.

    I would give him plain white rice and plain cooked chicken pieces. If it doesn't stop soon, take him to the vet asap. I had a dog in foster care (I volunteer with rescue) and the lady took her to the vet after a week of vomiting and the poor dog was dehydrated. So I had to admit her to the emergency vet for 24hr glucose drip........$800 later the dog is better but don't let it get that far.

    My dog had similar problems, went on for some time. I figured it was a bowel obstruction. Took her to the vet to find out she had cancer near some vital organs--the cause of the blockage. I ended up losing her.

    I hope things go better for you. If it doesn't run its course in a couple days, you might want to take it to the vet.

    According to:

    The Use of Bismuth Subsalicylate (Pepto Bismol) in Pets

    1/4 tablet per 20lbs of dog. So, about 3/4 of a tablet for your dog, every 6-8 hours.

    Do everything you can to keep the dog hydrated. Will the dog drink something like gatorade? Maybe mix in some ground up meat into his water.

    Any updates? Hope your dog is okay. Take him to the vet if needed. I'd rather sell all my guns and whatnot than lose my dog. Can buy stuff back, but life...

    dog is drinking water and I have him off his food for the night and will see the outcome of tommrow morning. He is resting comfortably. If not improved will try pepto for 24 hrs then go to the vet.
