Prednisone is very hard on stomachs - there may be an issue with that. I never, ever give it on an empty stomach. I would give the vet a call Monday morning, but if he seems worse, take him in.
For vomiting and/or diarrhea, my vet alwasy recommends nothing by mouth for 12 hours. Then we go back to water and a low residue diet for a couple of days, before slowly adding regular dog food in. If your dog is allergic to any of these ingredients, then don't use it.
Diet for Vomiting or Diarrhea – Low Residue
1 pound hamburger; boiled, drained
1 cup uncooked rice; cooked
2 whole eggs, hard boiled, shelled
2 tablespoons karo syrup, light
After vomiting stops, may start on water and ice as tolerated.
Give oral meds as ordered.
May substitute skinless chicken for hamburger. Shred meat/chicken. It is critical to drain the fat off, so boiling the meat is recommended.
Cook the rice according to directions on the box. One cup of uncooked rice will make approximately 3 cups cooked rice.
Mix all the prepared ingredients and refrigerate. Warm before feeding.
We start off slowly, with a cup of the mixture, wait 2 hours and feed 2 cups. The goal is 2 cups, three times a day.
If this doesn't work, or your dog seems worse, call the vet. My dogs love this food. Bennett managed to keep this down, even with a blockage.
