A: Vomiting &Diarrhea Treatment for pets over 6 months old
If your pet vomits at all on water your pet should be seen for an examination. Please call for an appointment.
Otherwise, withhold food for 24 hours. After 24 hours you can start to give small amounts of a soft, bland which would include one of the following:
- LEAN hamburger, chicken or turkey BOILED in water and drained. The meat should be skinless and boneless. You want the meat to be lean so that it is not greasy. Mix the meat with equal parts of boiled white rice.
- I/D prescription diet. It is available in dry or canned form and can be obtained through a veterinarian.
- Baby food (pureed meat varieties) turkey and chicken are the best.
Do not feed your pet any dairy products, their regular food/treats, or any oily/greasy food.
If your pet vomits at all on the soft, bland diet your pet should be seen for an examination. Please call our office for an appointment.
If your pet is better while on the bland diet feed only this diet for 2 to 3 days, feeding your pet small amounts 3-4 times daily. On the third day begin to mix small amounts of their regular food with the bland diet.Gradually transition them back to their regular food over the next few days.
If vomiting or diarrhea resume after switching back to their regular diet, please call our office.
