Stomach pain in small dogs

Common Questions and Answers about Stomach pain in small dogs


Avatar m tn I tried withholding food for approxiately 10 hours and feeding him brown rice but within several hours of eating he vomits. Seems to have good energy and not in any pain. I read an article about trying clear liquids but I'm not sure what liquids to give him and how often and how much. Any suggestions?
Avatar f tn in the continuation to the above i have read endoscopy causes perforation i.e.hole in the stomach for which surgery is required afterwards. i also throat burning for which i tried elevation of bed on the headside but then i had low back pain afterwards. so i removed the elevation.
7746659 tn?1393923237 I would have to do some reading up on this issue in dogs. I am somewhat familiar with delayed motility in people so am assuming the "mechanics", so to speak are the same. Sounds like he has an irritated gut too. He needs to be on a bland food that is easily digested. Try cooking up some chicken (no skin) and rice and you could add some vegetable like shredded zucchini.
Avatar f tn However, I'd discourage her from launching in such a way, it's not the greatest habit anyway. My son kicked me in the stomach (not hard) in early pregnancy and I lost the pregnancy, and although I pretty much know the two are not related, I stressed about it anyway and emotionally sort of felt like that hurt the pregnancy. You don't want to stress every time Fifi kicks off.
4020799 tn?1355829170 I was out walking the dogs with my bf and he assumed id stopped, i assumed hed seen me... anyway i carried on walking as he swung the stick (more the size of a small log) and it hit me right in the stomach, not really hard but hard enough for me to wince (didnt wind me and hasnt marked me) im home now and theres no bleeding or pain and baby is moving as normal.
86075 tn?1238118691 We tried to get our dog to throw it back up, but there was nothing left in the stomach. It was completely absorbed, and caused hypoglycemia and liver damage even though we started treatment. We began to see bloody stools, lethargy and severe abdominal pain. We nearly lost our second dog, but didn't, because we had on hand what we needed to protect the liver and started giving it immediately. Most importantly we prayed like crazy! To God be the glory that our dogs are alive!
1872406 tn?1320893991 The only thing I keep thinking is at least she did not suffer too much. Her worst was still to come , in terms of pain and suffering...She was a mere shadow of her old self in the end, but at least she was cheerful. Also, while a relatively pain free end is one of the biggest goals, I also think some of the things I tried, if I had commenced earlier, they would have kept her alive longer.
754744 tn?1233853250 and I am waiting by the phone for the results of his blood test.. but researching 'fluid in chest in dogs' online.. has resulted to nothing positive or promising. 1. They can drain the fluid necessary but eventually scars... so they can't do it anymore. 2. They can wrap the heart or something with something... so the chyle fluid doesn't reach the heart... but that's only has a 50% rate and then only 20% success rate. 3. Then the other two choices are not good either..
1916673 tn?1420236870 Dogs acquire phosphorus directly from food, and normally (in healthy dogs) any excess is excreted through the kidneys. In kidney disease the kidneys are damaged and cannot excrete excess phosphorus, which then acts like a toxic substance in the blood. Reducing phosphorus intake is therefore important (check all the foods you may be feeding, including treats, for phosphorus content). The additional way of controlling it is to introduce a phosphate binder.
1963554 tn?1325451090 We went through that with our Joker Wallace. He had kidney cancer. I asked the vet if he was in much pain...he said yes. My mind was made up at that point...I wanted to be selfish...I wanted my baby to stay with me ( had raised him from 2 days of age...his mommy had been killed)...but he was hurting. The day I brought him back to the vet he had peed in the house...he must have peed out a bucket full...I knew it was over. The vet gave me time to call hubby and to pick up the kids.

Avatar f tn It is very sad, however, it is best not to leave the dog in pain. My heart goes out to you as I have shed many a tear over my dogs and I know how it feels to lose a beloved pet.
369472 tn?1198749292 I figured that my dog would want me to love another as much as I loved him, and I will tell you everyone in my family knew how much it was tearing me up to let him go. My dog was in pain, I had no choice but it sure did hurt me. One thing I want to suggest to you is ask the vet (when you do make this choice) if they use the two shot method. This is what I regreat the most, I wanted my dog to go to sleep before he was sent to heaven.
Avatar f tn He said dogs don't swell like this unless it is very serious, I don't want her to go through exploratory surgery just for her to die on the table, A fair few vets have seen her now, the thing is I don't know if she is an old girl or not, her stomach is enormous. If she is old it could kill her anyhow. I know in my heart and soul it is something very serious, she is so thin except for this enormous stomach,.
7219853 tn?1389292676 She is generally a calm dog, playful at times, and hasn't displayed any other signs of being in pain. I'd love to connect with someone who has gone through the same thing and maybe get some advice as to what I can do to help her.
Avatar f tn the male threw up and pooped all night the female did not and died this morning when i got up now the male puppy isnt drinking or wanting to move and is starting to get stiff in the mouth and thick spit i almost can't get water in please help what can i do....
Avatar f tn Collies, as a breed, have some of the most human traits I've ever seen in dogs! My collies have always had that big Collie grin in their photos, but Adam actually SMILES! At first we thought he was showing his teeth but then it dawned on us that he does it when he's happy and after he does it, he gets a bad attack of the "happies" and dances around wiggling himself for all he's worth!
675347 tn?1365464245 I don't know if anyone can answer this...if not, never mind. Misty is not in any pain now, but she might get discomfort occasionally in the future. The vet recommended Paracetamol, as it doesn't interfere with blood clotting, as other pain relief for dogs can. He gave me some tablets. They are big and have "square" edges. Normally Misty is easy to give a tablet to. I wrap it in a piece of brown bread, potato or cheese, throw it at her and it goes right down without touching the sides!
Avatar n tn My grandma is in her 80's and she came down with this rash that is red blister looking bumps but they are not blisters that burn and itch and are very painful they keep her up at night in pain . They also start to burn when touched by water . They are on her hands front and back and feet and on the bottom of her feet . And they are spread out out over her body in no certain areas arms, legs , etc. they are in little groups not in any big type areas .
12757438 tn?1433677330 She is eating very little and drinking somewhat. She is alert, and does not seem to be in as much pain as Friday but still not feeling well enough to get up and walk.
Avatar f tn after eating today so much pain-feels like my stomach is going to explode.cannot cope with pain anymore.Dr said it is just my stomach not an ovarian stomach is getting bigger every day so must be something.crying whole time .dr also said taht when i had operation fro stress incontinence the gynecologist wa salso checking my ovaries btu this was not mentioned to me at anytime by DR or gynaecologist.
172023 tn?1334675884 I have two dogs that will vomit stomach acid if they aren't fed right when they first wake up in the morning. Instead of giving them pills, I give them a few oyster crackers or a small dog biscuit and they're good to go till it's feeding time an hour or two later. Works every time. Just a thought if you want to save some money and avoid giving your dog medicine.
Avatar m tn We, as humans, take stuff like Tums to release gas, or a bubbly drink, and other bottles of stuff in the drugstore to stop bloating, stomach pain, and so forth. Your vet MIGHT want to keep them for a couple days, to make sure the lamb bones pass... he may have to use an endoscope (they sedate and then put a little tube into their mouths, work it down to the stomach, and grab out the bones,if needed).
1916673 tn?1420236870 8 mg/dL) Together with BUN and Creatinine, an abnormal phosphorus level is the primary diagnostic indicator of chronic kidney failure in dogs. Most (85%) of phosphorus is stored in bones, but a small amount circulates In blood as phosphate ion. The latter is crucial for nerve function and muscle contraction. A dog’s kidneys control the level of phosphorus circulating in the blood and prevent the level from rising too high.
1916673 tn?1420236870 The other two dogs miss him and our male chihuahua emulates Rockys patterns. The dogs are determining their order in the pack as Eocky was small but the alpha dog.
Avatar n tn (of 11 years) down three years ago today, due to stomach cancer, I thought I was strong enough to handle it, I didn't want her in pain anymore, but every day I have that question in my heart if I did the right thing, I want another week, another hour, another min.
Avatar f tn I'm 7 weeks 5 days and my boyfriends dog which is a pug jumped on my stomach. Didn't really feel any pain but will the baby be okay?
Avatar n tn My sister is not a whimp like me. She is strong and never complains. But you can now see the pain in her face. One other thing to mention is that 2 weeks before the pain started she was in Santo Domingo. We thought maybe she caught a virus there but this has not panned out that way. Dr. told her wait six weeks because of appendix removed and she should feel better. I feel that is ridiculous, it is not a different pain it is the same as before. This is the same Dr.
Avatar n tn One of the clues of this stomach sickness being related was the pain in my cheekbone and the tingling in the belly that signalled the start of it. I remember it distinctly even though it was the first of August....I remember where I was standing when it happened. Unless you think I was miraculously cured by those praying for me, you would have to realize that viruses tend to leave the body as quickly as they start.
Avatar m tn This whole time I'm having bad pain on the right side of my bellybutton, pain in the groin area and pain in the penis. All on the right side. I then went to have a VCU study done. This study was excruciatingly painful. The doctor was very good and had done thousands of these studies. He noticed a narrowing of my urethra but thought that it wasn't important and wasn't very narrow. Life went on for a few more weeks and nothing changed. So I went to a GI doctor.
