My brothers dog began vomiting at 9AM yesterday and this continued off and and on until about 2:30 so he was taken to the Vet by his wife.
Jared's pup, Toby, is an Olde English Bulldogge mix(not 100% sure what dad is) that is 10 weeks old. He has been feeding it three meals a day which consists of a little Iams Proactive Health Smart Puppy mixed with raw venison(white tail deer), a little milk and an occasional egg mixed in.
The Vet took xrays which showed nothing. She told him the raw venison was too rich and was upsetting his stomach. She gave him antacid medication, nausea medication, and what she called a bland canned dog food to help settle his stomach. I can't remember what it was called but it was mostly made of corn? She also gave him a bag of Science Diet to feed after that once his stomach settles. I can't help but think this is bad advice after reading about diet on this website.
When Jared got home he went out to take a look at the the dog poo in the yard. He found a stool that had pieces of a wooden pencil, a small piece of plastic, and pieces of a granola bar wrapper in it. I guess his wife wasn't watching him very well while he was at work. We both think that this is the cause of the vomiting and at 6PM the dog was back to acting normal.
My brother bought a bag of Merrick Classic Chicken, Brown Rice & Sweet Pea and will be feeding that along with some raw and ignoring the Vet's advice. What are your thoughts about this vets care and advice?
