Vomiting and Diarrhoea

This advice does not substitute a proper consultation with a veterinarian and is intended only as a guide. We recommend you follow all advice as given by your veterinarian and contact them immediately with any concerns. You must follow medications as dispensed by your veterinary clinic and monitor your pet closely during their recovery period noting any changes and contacting your veterinary clinic as needed.

 

Vomiting and Diarrhoea


If your pet has vomiting and diarrhoea, a change in diet may be advised by your veterinarian. If this persists for longer than 24 hours or you are in any way concerned because your pet is lethargic or dehydrated, please contact your veterinarian for an appointment.

First 24 hours

No food besides electrolyte solutions.

Next 2-3 days

Offer small amounts of a warmed bland diet several times per day. If this is accepted without further problems, gradually increase the amount of food offered. If your veterinarian has provided you with a bland diet, this should be offered; if not, it is acceptable to offer cooked white rice and cooked chicken with all skin and fat removed.

Next 3-4 days

If vomiting and diarrhoea has stopped, gradually change back to feeding it its normal diet.
