I believe my dog is suffering from stomach ache and diarreah. It started on yesterday when he stole my son's cake and ate it. I was a big slice. Then later he stared crying like something is hurting him and keeps pooping in his cage and vomiting. He does not act like his normal happy active dog self. He has been laying around. Went outside to potty but came back in and laid down. When I picked him up and rubbed his tummy, he started crying. He is also shaking slightly. When I was rubbing his tummy, he would only cry when I notice his tummy mucsled tensing.
Is there something that I can do for him or give him to ease his pain? He is a mini pincher mixed with chihuahua and is 2 years old.
What did the vte say? If it started yesterday and he has been ill, vomiting, diarhhea and crying in pain, he should have seen a vet ASAP. Its impossible to guess exactly what it may be. Could be something in the cake causing it, could be a virus that just coincidentally began around the same time as the cake incident and is non related...he needs a vets care immediately.
Take him to the vet. Was it a big piece of chocolate cake? Chocolate is toxic to dogs and the shaking is a symptom. If so, this is a small dog and that large a piece of cake is not good. The darker and richer the chocolate, the deadlier.
Regardless, that is not normal behavior for your pet so you should have it examined.
my vet has said the baking type of chocolate is the most deadly for dogs, however milk chocolate as in candy bars isn't as bad and 1oz per l0 lbs can be given to you dog about once every other month and should cause no real problems, however if your dog ingest ANY kind of baking chocolate or COCOA at all see your vet immed. it is very bad for your pup and can be deadly.
If people were more like animals the world would be a better place...
If they find a stash have an "oops" with milk or white chocolate without an episode, consider yourself lucky. Lesson learned. Why risk neurological damage? They do have carob which is a lot like chocolate used in recipes for humans and doggies.
When asked what he would do if stranded on a deserted island with nothing but a cow in sight; "I would find out what the cow was eating and join him."
Next time, induce vomiting as soon as the guilty party ingests the bad stuff, say 1/4 -1/2 cup of my favorite, hydrogen peroxide. That'll bring up the offending matter usually before it can be absorbed. Yikes! with cake....what a grand mess that'll be
