    Hi there,

    Sometimes dogs do eat something that briefly upsets their stomach. Always keep water handy but withholding food for a meal or two can help. Sounds like she is not wanting to eat anyway. Cottage cheese and rice (1 part to 2-3 parts) is an easily digested bland diet.

    Pepto bismol is sometimes useful for dogs short term. I would contact your veterinarian for their recommendations and dosing. If your dog continues not to feel well, you will need to see your veterinarian to make sure she doesn't get dehydrated and has a more serious problem.

    Dr. Sandy
