bad diarrhea in my dog after treat
My dog had diarrhea starting last night a few hours after I gave her some chicken jerky treat I got at Trader joe's. Funny thing I never buy that stuff from petco cause they smell like they're caked in chemicals but this one seemed to be odorless and had a premium from trader joe's. Any way, she had the run last night and I've been taking her outside every 1 or 2 hours and she will have the squirts. At this point it's just pure liquid, no substance. Sometimes she will go and then she will walk around and try to go again and nothing will come out. She's been outside maybe 7 times today.
She's also been munching on grass and I heard dogs do that when their stomachs aren't right. And because of that she threw up this morning just yellow bile stuff.
She's not lethargic and she's excited to still go outside and probably would chase the ball if I threw it (I didn't, want to take it easy until she recovers). She also ate cooked chicken breast (no seasoning, plain, steamed) so she does have some appetite.
It's 7 pm here in Cali and I dont think it requires a vet visit unless it doesn't go away tomorrow or she gets worse.
I'm kind of getting paranoid cause I just read that a lot of these chicken jerky treats come from China and a lot of dogs are dying from them. The FDA has complaints and reports from vets and pet owners alike.
I'm sure she'll be fine but if anyone has dealt with a dog that died from bad food or treats, what are the symptoms that I need to look for?
Diarrhea and vomiting is a normal occurrence for an upset GI for a dog but anything beyond that? Fever? shallow or rapid breathing? Is it preventable only if you go before hand? I heard they die of kidney failure probably because of the toxins in the treats.
One of the signs of kidney failure and problems is to drink and urinate a lot more and she hasn't been doing that so I'm glad.
If anyone has insight on this or words of encouragement about how your dog went through something like this and how you helped your dog recover, would like to hear!
She's 1 year old now but she looks and acts like she's 6 months. People ask me how old my puppy is all the time. She's a small 55 lbs and still has a baby face. I'm probably being paranoid but I just had to put my other dog down 2 weeks ago and I get worried.
