    hi all
    just after some advice, woke up this morning to poo and sick everywhere, luckier on the lino kitchen floor so easy to clean, but now not sure on what to feed Bracken if anything. I think i know what has caused the sickness and runny poos, he managed to pinch a tub of Clover margarine on Friday:eek: and ate the lot!! So what should i do feeding wise, he doesnt seemed to be too bothered about it, he is just sitting around looking very sorry for himself.:(
     
  2. Sounds to me like the stolen marg cold be the problem, my dogs seem attracted to that and have done it on a numberof occasions! The results being he same as you have just experenced with Bracken! You should have an impovement now! but if not need to look for other reasons
    regards
    DT

    ps - feed as normal but smaller portion, and make sure he has fluid! if he's still out of sorts he will maybe just pick at his food

    If vomiting I wouldnt feed anything for 12-24 hrs depending on the dog and how sick they are.
    Water little and often and then start with a very bland diet, and as DT suggests small portions for a day.
    Sometimes the gastrointestinal tract just needs a little rest after dealing with such a rich contraband!;)

    Scrambled egg is good for binding them up and is nice and light or boiled chicken and boiled rice.

    Hope he's better soon.:)

    Aww bless him...he now knows that.."i cant beleive its not butter is not butter".....he will be fine, scrambled egg is good for binding. Keep an eye out if it goes on for longer though as it could be something else. Hope he gets well soon bless..xxx
