Phase A: First 12 – 24 hours: Water, Ice-licks*, Broth, (fat free) and plain, canned Pumpkin 1/4c. per 15 pounds twice a day and some hard cheese.
Phase B: 24-48 hours: White rice or white bread and Campbell’s Chicken Noodle soup or Eggs any style and plain, canned Pumpkin 1/4c. per 15 pounds twice a day.
Phase C: 48-72 hours: Regular DRY food, except it’s waterlogged with water or fat free broth, plus plain, canned Pumpkin 1/4c. per 15 pounds once or twice a day. After the first 48 hours or so, you might do well to add a little low fat yogurt (Chobani) of the Blueberry persuasion to replace germs we’re killing with some of the diarrhea medications. That’d be a tablespoon of Blueberry yogurt per 20 pounds, twice a day.
It is PERFECTLY OKAY if the dog doesn’t want to eat anything. Their colon knows better than you, or I do, when it’s ready to accept food for processing.
*Ice-licks is a ‘technique’ – it’s a towel in a bowl with ice on it. The towel wicks up ‘standing water” and the dog licks the ice for thirst. Thing is, they consider it such a pleasant novelty that they’ll “lick” much more water than they’d ever “drink”.
