Bentley is now vomiting today!
I seriously don't know what to do! Bentley has vomited 4 times since 430 this morning. The first two times he had an empty stomach and was just bile but has now thrown up the rice that we gave him two different times. He throws up about 1.5 hours after eating. He also had a soft/diarrhea stool this morning. Yesterday he only had rice (due to me quitting the chicken since I was suspecting he is having issues with that-see yesterday's post) until last night I did give him 1/2 tbs. of salmon mixed in.
Does he need to go to the ER? I did get an RX of metronidazole from the vet yesterday just in case things got worse (my request)-should I start giving that to him?
He has been taking half of a 10 mg Pepcid at night. Should I give him 1/4 tablet now and then another one late tonight? Or just wait until tonight to give him 1/2 tablet? Also, vet had previously said that anytime he has diarrhea I could give him 1 1/2 ml Pepto Bismol twice daily 30 minutes after Pepcid-anyone have thoughts on that?
Should I withhold all food today? He's definitely acting like he's not feeling well again. I really wish vets were accessible on the weekends! I'm so frustrated with whatever it is that is going on-it has been going on for too long!!!
