Today my 2 year old poodle woke up sick. He is not drinking or eating. I forced feed him from a feeding tube some water and peptobismol. Any other suggestions?

You should never force feed your pet...take him to the vet. You could very possibly be doing more harm than good, Many vets have told me NEVER to give a dog pepto bismol...only Kaopectate for diarhea , if it is not a severe case. Not eating or drinking does not require this...it requires a visit to the vet. Good Luck.

Your dog desperately needs the vet. There is no other way.

Get your poodle to the vet ASAP!!This little animal will be very sick,..if you gave him pepto bismol...NEVER GIVE an ANIMAL PEOPLE MEDS!!hope you follow up with vet or go to the pet emergency clinic..
I am so sorry your baby is sick ! The best thing to do is take him to the vet! If money is an issue you can go to a local shelter near you and they will treat him for very little money or, tell you where you can go.Please let us know when he is feeling better !

There are so many things to take into account, eye color, type of poo(if any), type of vomit. If you are lucky enough to be there when the dog poops or vomit, you could get a bit of both, in speciment containers so your vet can have them analyzed. If you're not confident enough to see your dog through this, its best to get it to the vet ASAP. He could be dehydrated or this could be the beginning of a deadly disease. Best to catch it before it becomes full blown and its too late. Good luck.
