Q. My 13 yr old dachshund female is prone to HEG? She is showing signs with diarrhea again. Chicken and rice? yogurt? nothing?
DAVID ELBEZE, DVM, MRCVS
A. She might have a sensitive stomach or she might have eaten something spoiled that is causing this. withhold food for 12 hours then offer her boiled boneless chicken and rice every 6 hours in small portions. if she is eating and not vomiting, continue with this diet for 2 days.
After 2 days, you can put her back gradually on her normal food.
If she continues with the diarrhea, take her to the vet to get treatment.
