Tummy Troubles

The other day Windy had loud tummy sounds, nasty gas and didn’t want breakfast. Fearing another round of hemorrhagic gastroenteritis, I called my veterinarian. She said to give her a Pepcid (famotidine).

I have given dogs Pepcid before and had success. Please remember: Not all human medicines are appropriate for dogs. Pepto Bismol, for example, is not a good idea.Yet I have had dogs take baby aspirin, amoxicillin and phenergan prescribed by a vet.

Windy’s symptoms were gone later that day, and she ate a good dinner. Looks like I’ll stop buying Tagamet for me and use Pepcid.

About daysofourdogs

I have owned dogs nearly all my life. Many different breeds, mutts, rescues, and foundlings have found their ways into my heart. I have two dachshunds and a miniature schnauzer now. I hate puppy mills and want them wiped from the face of the earth.
