Default My sick dog

I am new here and I am not sure if this is the place to post, But here it goes.

My Schnauzer won't eat but drinks a lot of water and throws it right back up. I had her to the vet last week for this and he did a blood test on her and all was good, He gave me some medicine for her one bottle to keep her from throwing up, another bottle of antibiotics and a bottle of fluid for pain.She started doing better and I thought that she was back to being her old self so I stopped giving her the Med's. but I have started them again cause she isn't doing well. Any Idea as to why she is doing this. The vet said that she caught a bug.

{edited to make it a little easier to read without the underlines }

Denis, dogs can get stomach bugs, just like people. What kind of blood work was done? Did your vet rule out any medical problems, like Diabeties? Rule of thumb for antibotics for pets and people... always finish out your script. Never stop taking your antibotics because you are feeling better. How long has she been sick? Can she keep any food down at all?

Unless the vet thinks it's a bacterial infection, antibiotics are not necessary. They won't do anything for a viral infection. (this is true for humans too)
You might try some plain pumpkin for upset tummy.
Also boiled eggs and plain rice may stay down too.

Hi Denis how long has she (what's her name?) not been eating and how long has the the throwing up been going on for and how old is she? And Dee is right right always finish a course of antibiotics if you have started the course again you may need a second course if indeed it's bacterial infection you might try some unsweetend plain yoghurt that has good bacteria in it But if this has been going on for a couple of weeks or more I would seriously go back to your vets and ask what's wrong, get a complete diagnosis and what can be done to fix the problem for your girl! Hope she is feeling better soon Please keep us updated!

Your vet suspected an infection, and prescribed an antibiotic. You should follow the directions on the bottle of antibiotic, and your vet's instructions, until the antibiotics are gone, especially since she responded and felt better. If the bug is a virus, the antibiotics won't hurt. If the bug is a bacterial infection, then the antibiotics will likely get rid of it. When an antibiotic starts working, it weakens the bacteria, and we feel better, but we have to keep taking the antibiotic so it doesn't just weaken the bacteria, but eliminates it altogether.

If, after the antibiotics have been used up, your dog is still vomiting and not doing well, you need to take her back to the vet, and try other options.

The blood work covered almost everything. The vet seams to think that she got a bug and stupid me I should of given her all of her med's even if she was looking better she was sick for three days last week and she just started again yesterday. She hasn't threw up today yet but she hasn't ate anything either. I cook some white rice with hamburger and some green beans which she loves and she just turned her noise up at it. Boiled chicken next.

Just keep things plain for a bit and that should help. Hope she gets better soon.
