Q. My poodle occasionally gets sick. Vomiting and her fecal matter becomes diarrhea and it is bloody and very tacky and even looks clotty.Sleeps alot.
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, continue feeding until the stool is normal. Transition slowly to the regular diet. If the vomiting or diarrhea donâ€™t stop, see your veterinarian.
