I have a 13 year old neutered male DSH who has IBS (irritable bowel syndrome) for the past two years.
He stopped eating about three days ago (grain free single-protien diet), and has lost a noticable amount of weight. I switched him to a grain free (poultry) soft food this afternoon and although he is still drinking water, Max has thrown up the moist food twice in the past ten minutes. He kept his meal down for about 2 hours, but what I am seeing doesn’t as though he had begun to digest any of the moist food (still wet, still looks like it did in his dish). My vet’s office isn’t open until Monday, and I don’t have anything to give him medicine-wise. Is there ANYTHING I can safely give him to help soothe his digestive tract so he can eat even a little bit? He says it hurts and he’s afraid to eat.
Any help appreciated–I love him very much and am terrified of losing him.
