Q. My dog has had pancreatitis in the past. I gave her a couple of bites of turkey gizzard with her lunch and she threw up two hours later. Please advise
A. Withhold food for 24 hours. Allow small amounts of water or unflavored PediaLyte. Resume feeding a very bland and low fat 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. Feed the bland diet for several days then transition slowly to the regular diet. If the vomiting continues, she becomes lethargic or shows signs of abdominal pain, see your veterinarian.
