Up ALL night ... :(

Tillie has never been sick. not diarehha, no throwing up, nothing, for the 10 months that we have had her ... that streak ended last night.

She was panting really hard at bed time, I thought that was weird, but she settled down, then woke me up softly whining around 1am. She had thrown up all over her crate... I took her out and she procedded to have diareeha everywhere... poor girl. So I cleaned her up, put a towel down in her crate and back to bed. This happened every 2 hrs all night long. Last time she actually woke me before she started throwing up so she puked outside. sigh. I am trying to be calm and not get too worried, comparing this to a child's flu virus, as it sure had the same symptoms. We are at my mom's house and we DID go for a walk last night, could she have picked up a virus that fast??
What should I feed her to help her tummy stay calm? SHe hasn't thrown up for 4 hrs now and is actually hungry...

The poor baby!!! She probably ate something nasty on your walk last night.

You probably should go for some bland stuff for her tummy. Rice and chicken is the usual, I believe, and in tiny portions. A tsp., then wait 20 min. Another tsp. and wait.

Make sure she has water. Ice cubes are terrific.

I'll pull a "Dave" and pur in a link to an article.

I don't know I would worry about dehydration...can you give her something for that? If it happens again, off to the vets would be my suggestion..hugs to all

Lizzie had that last week. I have no idea what caused it. I think it was a virus. My vet had me add 1 heaping teaspoon of slippery elm powder to 1 cup of cold water. Mix it up in a saucepan and heat it until it is thickened. Add 1 tablespoon of honey. Give a teaspoon after every loose stool. I had a 3 cc syringe that I filled all the way and that was about 1 teaspoon. It helps calm the stomach and colon. Fast her for 24 hours except for water or a little broth. Lizzie actually fasted for 48 hours on her own. After that I gave her a little oatmeal, then some cooked egg yolk and finally her food the next day. It is very scary when they get sick .

thanks everyone!
I just gave her a bit of sweet potato, she is allergic to chicken and rice... sigh. BUT I can give her some mashed banana... I can get her some beef broth and use that... she'd probably LOVE it... I'll keep everyone posted. It's super hard cause we are at my mom's house and she has WHITE carpet! INSANE... sigh...
slippery elm? interesting? is it drops?

I'm hoping Tillie is showing signs of improvement. I would worry about dehydration.
When Keeper was showing, he picked up coccidia apparently at a show and was so sick that we had to take him to the emergency vet who gave him intravenous fluids. The problem with coccidia is that it doesn't show up in a test when it is actively making the dog sick. The dehydration would be my main concern and hopefully it is no longer a problem.

Aw poor Tillie! Sounds like a virus to me, just make sure to keep her hydrated...

Hope she is all better soon!

Poor little Tillie! I didn't read this until now, so I hope that by now her tummy is settling down. Everyone else seems to have given you good advice already... I'm sure things are harder with her allergies.

Kodi and I both send gentle hugs!

Poor Tillie. I hope she's feeling better. Pumpkin works wonders for diarrhea. My vet and breeder have both recommended it. Be sure to get simple canned pumpkin, not pumpkin pie filling. My vet recommended a tablespoon with breakfast and another with dinner.
