Q. my dog seams to be fine during the day but for the past 2 nights he's been throwing up & has diahrea. please tell me what could be causing this..
A. Vomiting and diarrhea have multiple causes. Make sure he isn't getting into something he shouldn't have before bedtime. Overfeeding should also be ruled out. In the meantime, withhold food for 12-24 hours. Allow small amounts of water or unflavored PediaLyte. Resume feeding a bland diet (1:1 ratio of plain boiled boneless chicken and plain white rice). Feed in small, frequent amounts waiting at least one hour between feedings. If the vomiting stops, continue feeding until the stool is normal. Transition slowly to the regular diet. If the vomiting or diarrhea don’t stop, see your veterinarian.
