I need some tips for helping my poor little beagle. My barn cats have been leaving lots dead mice and things lying around lately. My family kept letting the dog out unsupervised, even though I kept telling them not to (they made sure I wasn't around when they did it). She'd go and eat a bunch of dead mice, throw them up on the floor later, and then be fine. That had been going on for a few weeks. A few days ago, there was a really old disgusting looking bird carcass in the yard. I went to get a shovel to get rid of it. Unbeknownst to me, someone in the house let the dog out. I got back to where the bird was, and my dog had just finished it, feathers, bones, bugs and all. Since then, she's had had diarrhea and been throwing up. She has still been drinking, but she won't eat unless I force her. I've been giving her small amounts of baby food and a high calorie paste I got at the pet store. She doesn't have a fever, and her pupils look normal. She's been improving very slowly, but I want to know if there's anything I can do to help her get well faster. Can I give her a little Gatorade (or something similar) to help her get over the loss of fluids? They don't let her out unsupervised anymore. Why couldn't they listen BEFORE my dog was miserable and in pain?
