Dill pickle caused vomiting/diarrhea?

December 10th, 2006, 07:58 AM
I have a 5 month old Cocker spaniel who managed to grab and devour a small dill pickle before I could get it away from him. About an hour later, I put him in his crate as I had to go out to run some errands. Upon my return, 2 hours later, I found that poor Cody had been quite ill while I was gone. I felt sooo badly about him being stuck in his cage, all alone, in that mess!! Does anyone know if one little pickle could have caused this, or was it just a coincidence? I fed him rice and chicken the rest of the day, and he has been just fine since.

Poor Cody! I'm not a vet or an expert, so please don't take this as gospel, but I would think that the vinegar might cause an upset stomach especially in a puppy. I do remember a few months ago when my dogs were about that age, their stomachs were far more sensitive than they are now.

I'm glad that he seems to be over the upset, though.
