Perhaps he has an ulcer
by: Anonymous

My JRT just under a year old when she started to vomit and dry heave.. Sometimes her vomit would be like a mucus and she wouldn't eat or drink. When I took her to te vet, they told me its most likely associated with the acid in her stomach that's causing this and perhaps it was the food she was eating. Try changing the diet and see if that helps. In the mean time give your dog some Gatorade to keep them hydrated. What worked for me was some prescribed ulcer medication that I picked up from the local pharmacy. It wasn't expensive and worked like a charm. I don't quite remember the name but it was a white thick liquid that was a little sweet tasting and had no issues with my dog accepting it. I hope your little one feels better!!

Bland diet
by: Patrick

So sorry to hear that. Since your Jack has been vomiting/dry heaving and not eating - make sure that you introduce a bland diet when he does start eating again. Like rice and cooked chicken which is good for upset stomachs.

Won,t eat...
by: Prince...

Awwww, have you tried cooking food? I buy the best dog food, but my jrt will not eat his food. He loves what I cook, it's easy and healthier.. Last for week. Rice with ground beef and veggies, can make it with chicken, pork, beef or whatever your dog likes. My 3 year old has never had a problem digesting human food (thank God). I'll pray things get better for you guys.
