Q. My grandmother is staying with us for the holidays and her small toy poodle, 8 yrs, may or may not have eaten a large wad of leftover cookie dough??
A. Monitor for lethargy, vomiting, diarrhea, abdominal pain or loss of appetite. If you see GI upset, withhold food for 12-24 hours. Allow small amounts of water or unflavored PediaLyte. Resume feeding a bland diet ( boiled boneless / skinless chicken and plain white rice) in small, frequent amounts. If the vomiting stops, continue feeding until the stool is normal if there was diarrhea or simply transition to the regular diet. If the vomiting and/or diarrhea continue, see your veterinarian.
