My 10 year old bulldog has had her share of difficulties. She has IBS which she takes famotidine, metronidazole, and prednisone. She still has bouts of vomiting and diarrhea and must have inhaled some vomit. This has caused a terrible upper respiratory infection. Vet put her on cefpodoxime after giving her 2 shots of prednisone and antibiotic. This poor dog is still gagging on mucus after 2 days. is there anything anyone knows of to ease this thick mucus production? She gags and throws up after drinking which is about 6 times a day and has very little appetite. I am concerned about her keeping all her meds down and so sad to see her so distressed. Thank you for any advice. Vet knows all this and wants me to call if she gets worse.
