Q. I have a Cheetoh that's 5 months and is very sick. She started throwing up four days ago and hasn't stopped. Vet doesn't know what to do. Help?
A. 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, transition slowly to the regular diet. If not, recheck with your veterinarian for supportive care (if indicated) and/or consider a consult with an internal medicine specialist.
