Stomach flu in dogs

Common Questions and Answers about Stomach flu in dogs


Avatar f tn Friday I went to work, Sat me and the man both spent the day in stomach flu misery. It only lasted about 8 hours, but I have not been that sick in years. How about you? Has it hit your house yet? Please keep this in mind while out and about doing your seasonal shopping in large crowds. Yuck doesnt even describe it!
Avatar f tn Take him to the vet. Dogs don't usually have bacterial or viral infections like the stomach flu that make them sick. It takes a lot for them to stop eating, so he should be evaluated to make sure he hasn't ingested a foreign body or gotten into any toxins. He should also have a stool sample checked to make sure he doesn't have any worms that are causing a GI upset and diarrhea.
Avatar f tn I doubt if she's got the stomach flu (not the human version anyway) I don't THINK it is transmittable from human to pet...? But it could be the doggy version, or possibly she got into some festive food? Anyway, don't try to make her eat at all. Fast her completely. If she will keep water down, so much the better, to prevent her becoming dehydrated. That is very important.

Avatar n tn I remember having two dizzy spells and a weird feeling in my stomach like something in it dropped right after the vaccine. I hope you get into see the neurologists that you want soon. Please don't forget to keep us posted as to what they say. And don't forget one of us is usually on here everyday for support for each other so post anytime. Iceskater: I work in a hospital authority with many doctors and let's just say some doctors are okay, others barely passable, and some are great.
Avatar m tn The Zithromax gave me Diarrihea and upset stomach. Two days following the upset stomach I got sores on my tongue that were grey ish. Then I started to feel better once the melaise feeling went away although no energy and mouth still showed a white tongue and sores stayed around for about a week, seem to finally disappear. Two days ago I started getting a pain in my head towards the top and front followed by shooting Pain in my left armpit (come and go).
Avatar n tn I continue to have strange stomach spasms which feel like worms crawling in my stomach. I have extreme indigestion. I now eat a small meal every few hours because I feel sick and have such stomach distress when it is empty. The tingling drives me crazy. I've read that a side effect of Flagyl is nerve damage that can cause tingling of the extremities. Mine comes and goes so I don't believe this is my problem. Doc prescribed Bentyl over a month ago.
Avatar f tn He had the true stomach flu about 6 weeks ago and ever since then he will randomly complain that his stomach hurts. He is a very active boy and for him to be playing and completely stop and lay down cause his stomach hurts is unheard of!! I have been to the Pediatrician and am doing Miralax daily and also Pepcid a/c but it seems to be getting worse.

1741877 tn?1315627264 Has she eaten something unusual? Has she drunk water from streams, creeks, puddles? How is she generally? Healthy -or what? It's difficult to know what might have caused her tummy upset. It might be something very simple and it will quickly pass -or it might be a sign of some other illness...hard to tell. The best thing to do is withold all food, even the tiniest treat. But allow her access to as much fresh water as she needs.
Avatar n tn I think everything is over and I clean up. I walk out of the toilet and in about 2 minutes time the stomach cramp and the fainting sensation comes back (I've fainted only once to date from this and was out for about 15-20 minutes). 6. When I get back to the toilet I have a really violent Diarrhoea episode in pure liquid state.
Avatar n tn Hi Guys: I had been waiting for the RT PCR results for so long and today they are in Genotype: 3b Viral Load: 29486 copies/ml From your own experience, and having been in contact with a lot of people at this forum, what is the severity of my condition? Will therapy work for me? Please let me know.
Avatar m tn This morning has been my first time after sinus surgery that I smelled something bad.We have 2 dogs in the house,I thought it was my nose,but the smell was so strong I started looking around because I thought one of them has lost their mind and s**t I was walking around sniffing and when I didn't find anything,I got my Neti Pot and washed my sinuses 2 times,that was with 2 full Neti pots full.
Avatar m tn I have a continuous problem with thick mucous in my throat. I must clear my throat a hundred times a day. My larnyx gets so full of the thick mucous that I almost choke and it causes my eyes to water. When this happens I hack up about a quarter cup of the stuff. I went to an ENT specialist who diagnosed sinusitis due to restricted airflow because of a deviated septum. After two surgeries for this there is no improvment. I've tried Musinex and steroid nose sprays. Nothing seems to help.
192055 tn?1263559137 Hi, there are a whole bunch of postings under "chronic cough" which seem similar to this. And some good ideas I am going to try I have had a constant cough for 3 plus years and for last year it has been phlegmy like yours. I am always coughing and clearing my throat at meetings like an old man. Worse in a.m. when I wake up or out in cold walking the dogs. Or.... talking on the telephone or in a meeting. Always have a "frog" in my throat.
Avatar f tn I have cried all day, my family just thinks it is the Lupus, sometimes I just want them to know but so much is going on with the cancer and my son is scared for his father so I just act like I have the flu. I was glad you told me you had a hard time in the first few days. Lucky you have your sister to make you do things in the beginning. You are also very Lucky and I just like you, I like your personality, you seem fun.
Avatar f tn Almost like the stomach flu where you are throwing up and having diahrea at the same time. Ive concluded that eating hot dogs, or omelettes/eggs causes it, but other times I dont eat those foods and it happens. Sometimes it happens when I haven't even eaten anything much yet. Anyone else have this? I have no medical insurance so unless I get a seriously large hospital bill, im stuck relying on sites. Please help!!!
Avatar n tn 2) Pain in upper right quadrant Pain between right hip and lower rib on the right side Alot of gas Migrating joint pain - Ancles, knees and hip mostly, Tired alot Yucky feeling, like I'm coming down with the flu - without the mucle aches.
Avatar f tn Steam inhalation, nasal irrigation for almost 7 yrs. and nothing helps. I got this after I had the flu from when I was in a third world country. My doctor said that viruses can do alot of damage to the body and it could even change the way the mucus glands secrete their secretions. I guess there is not much research done on this problem because it is not life threatening, only makes life miserable. Does your undereyes ever swell up ?
Avatar n tn not sure if that is good or bad? used to have stomach issues, but kinda knocked that in the head. the more Coffee i drink (in mornings) i think can delay recovery process. (past the usual 20 mins) dont eat much in the morning until lunch time. why is it always (like clockwork) after 6 and one half hours pain begins? this should be a huge tell. what does lying down have to do with it. what does it change?
Avatar n tn I don't have allergies of any kind and I'm in excellent health and I can learn to live with the smell of fresh baked bread in my nostrils.. I mean it could be owrse.. still I think I should get someone to check this out especially as I read about Phantom smells being a possible side efect of brain tumors...
Avatar f tn Started feeling queasy in the afternoon so took my first nausea tab in preparation for the dancing lesson later on in the evening. Dancing lesson was fun. Felt really good but towards the end started to feel a bit tired. By the time I got home I was so exhausted. Felt like I had full on flu!!! Still tired this morning so took the day off work. Stayed in bed till 2pm. Lesson learnt. Even though you may feel fine one minute, don't overdo anything physical else you will suffer later.
Avatar n tn I've had eczema in my ears for 15 yrs. It is very cyclical, starting w/intense uncontrollable itching, then clear fluid leaking from skin, followed by crusting over & flaking of skin in ears that is itchy in & of itself, leading to more scratching & picking at ears. The skin in my ears gets very damaged and ratty during outbreaks. I also have swelling of the ear canal after these itch/scratch episodes that are sometimes quite painful, & Motrin helps that.

Avatar n tn About 48 hours ago, I noticed this heat sensation in my left shin. At first I thought I was standing too close to a heat vent in the floor at work! It is a warm, sort of tingly sensation that lasts 5 seconds and occurs, I don't know, 10 times throughout the day. I wonder if I slept on the leg funny?? Stress?? I am 43 and in reasonably good health but seem to be a hypochondriac (spelling?) at times.
Avatar n tn With hindsight I remembered, 8 months previously, I had had a very bad bout of flu and I do remember at that time blowing my nose and getting an awful pain in my cheekbone but because I nearly always get sinusitus after flu I just assumed my problem was to do with that. The pain was actually my sinus bursting! Anyway I had to go on yet another course of antibiotics but mostly just had to wait for the hole to heal up naturally. I was told to it could happen again if I get the flu.
Avatar m tn They have flu like symptoms and many dogs will shake with an upset stomach. Other reasons can be anxiety or pain. My best friend is in stage 4 currently, i understand how hard it is. I have found mixing raw ginger root into the food i make foe her helps, also adding pumpkin (if not already high potassium levels) can help. Slippery em bark is another good choice. The vet should also be able to give you a prescription.
525485 tn?1314364901 ) Anyways, the part I am so unhappy about is the new hospital policy having to do with the whole swine flu pandemic. Where I will be delivering they have a separate part of the hopsital called the snuggery, which is awesome. Well, probably until about April (when flu season will end) they are not allowing anyone under the age of 18 in to see mom's or babies (I guess it was 13 and they just changed it, which i wasnt aware of the rule at all until today).
Avatar n tn Hey, thanks for the advice, but I've never had a problem with xana or any other drug. Only opiates are addicting for me...tried cocaine a couple of times...never had the urge to want anymore. I drink alcohol sometimes, never feel like I could drink on a daily basis either. I don't know why I like pain pills so much. I guess it's because I can do all things I have to do in my life easier, it doesn't make you high in the sense of like being drunk or anything...
10821430 tn?1439584483 not better so into our vet today we went,blood testing done and he could feel thickness in his stomach,diagnosis today PLE. (No blood in stools,stools not black,first day was thick slime form and since then like a new cow pie..
Avatar n tn That's his OWN experience and doesn't mean you'll get the same. Once again, it's not proven yet except in dogs. It hasn't proved in humans (who would give cardiopoison to humans?!?) so it's not known if it'll do the same for humans.
