Rather than call the vet and have them tell me stuff I don't need to hear about, I thought I'd come and ask advice here. Our girl has been sick for 2 days now on and off; she had a relapse last night, had to be walked every 2 hours for a bout of diarrhea and she vomited on our bedroom floor once. She seems empty again now, still energetic, drinking ONLY water. We tried to introduce a SMALL amount of her food yesterday thinking that she had recovered but she didn't process her food again. Our Autistic girls sneak her food and that didn't help; today we've separated our dog from them to make sure she gets nothing but fresh water. How long should I do this and what should be her intro foods to solids again. I've heard of feeding canned pumpkin; is that ALL I should feed her for a bit or mix it with a bit of kibble? I must give kudos to our dog; she did her best last night to wake us up to take her out and only had one accident on the floor on Saturday. She's really trying to be good for us despite feeling so ill. Any gentle advice and prayers would be great! THANKS!
