Question Lola's tummy upset AGAIN !

If any of you recall Lola will just stop eating from time to time ...her stomach seems to make alot of noise during this time...Its happen 3 times since April...Had her at the vets in May and was told it was her pancreas ...was told she needed to eat the vets gastro food..which she has since then but still got sick...So back to the vets Monday ...I said I wanted to know for sure what was wrong with her ...the vet said yes blood work will show how bad her pancreas was....Well $500 later and her blood work was totally normal...Sooooo then what the heck is causing this issue with her stomach...vet says she MUST be getting into some human food...lol ...She is not has not had any human food I say....she insists someone in my family is giving her human food...obviously she doesn't know me well..I am a super over protective chi mom...NO NO NO she has not had human food...I said b4 the testing and blood work if it could be just gas or acid reflux she didn't think so...ANYWAYS I walked out with some famotidine( pepcid)...Here's the deal...I wonder if I should keep her on the vets recommended diet ? Its not healthy for her at all IMO...I had both my dogs on the best food I can buy...Grain free acana ...What do u guys think ?

Have you tried the canned pumpkin, not the pumpkin pie stuff. Probiotics? I would go that route as it seems she may have a very sensitive stomache. Are her poops normal & the amount she goes?

I have exactly the same thing with Zarita. Tummy is growly, she won't eat and even urps up yellow bile. Sometimes I think she is constipated---little hard turds like rabbit's! After she poops, she starts to eat. I give her Pepcid for reflux. Vet prescribed. It helps somewhat. I just quit bring her to the vet for this problem. She is an adult and can go for awhile without eating. As far as water goes, I just can't remember whether or not she drinks during these 'episodes'. She had everything done at a specialty clinic which cost me almost $1000. All negative. Done years ago. Try not to get anxious---they pick up on your nervousness. Good luck. Sue

Every about Lola is normal ...poops...urine...this time she was just as active as normal..Other times tho..she doesn't want to move much...the vet suggested pumpkin...green beans..carrots... as a treat ( like I said she thinks she was getting human food)...I really don't know anything about probiotics....
You know if I didn't know better I think Lola was burping while at the vets yesterday...So to me she gets gas/acid in her tummy and pepcid might work ?
Lola is hmmm how shall I put this ...a sensitive dog to say the least..The first thing she does to anyone who she sits on or who picks her up is smell their breath...She is checking to see their mood is what I think...my other chi Jose could careless He is a very balanced dog..I dunno what happened to Lola ...lol..She was raised the same...she is just so timid ...Her fav day is coming up here in Canada on Sunday...Canada Day with tons of fireworks...she freakssssssss at fireworks...I do my best to let her deal with her emotions herself..but fireworks are her enemy

Poor Lola! Antacids may help. When my stomach starts to give me trouble I don't like to eat because I am afraid of something making it worse. But then the problem with antacids is if you take them too much, you don't enough stomach acid to digest what you do eat! What about chicken and rice? Can she eat chicken and rice until she feels better? Our babies getting sick or not feeling well is worse than when children are. At least children can sort of tell you what's bothering them - our babies can't!

I hope she feels better soon.

Yes, that is true! Rico was taking Pepcid awhile back, and it caused him to vomit his food because he had too little stomach acid to digest his food. I had to stop giving him the Pepcid.

Guillermo goes through the same thing once in a while. I thought it was the protein content in the Origen so i switched him over to Acana wild prairie. He seems to be doing better.

Zoey's tummy does this at times as well. I boil her a bit of chicken and give 1/4 of a 10mg Pepcid in the chicken and she is better in no time. Her tummy makes horrible noises at times and this really helps. More so lately. I blamed it on her eatting Chloe's puppy food. Zoey weighs about 4.5 lbs,
