Q. A smooth haired Jack Russell. She has had diarrhea and vomiting, plus off food. In her sick there were whole brazil nuts original covered in chocolat
A. Brazil nuts are very fatty and too many can cause the signs you are seeing. The chocolate is a concern if she ate a large amount in relation to her weight. If she exhibiting signs of restlessness, increased heart rate or tremors then see your veterinarian. If not, 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.
