Your dog may vomit repeatedly, have diarrhea, or refuse to eat. They may have abdominal pains and may stop urinating. Check for symptoms of dehydration and monitor your dog's urine or stool. You may have to withhold some food. If your dog vomits, give less food and more water to drink. If your dog's animal doctor recommends a special diet, follow their instructions carefully. Take the dog outside frequently but limit the amount of exercise. Most importantly, monitor the symptoms closely and call the animal doctor.
