    Default Spinoff on aspirin for dogs - ulcer symptoms?

    What symptoms might a dog show in regards to gastric ulcers?

    When my aussie got ulcers years ago, she threw up blood, I rushed her to vet and she got prozac and something else for her nerves and ulcers. After that, she took a tagamet in the morning and one at night when she took her aspirin. Lived to be 2 months short of 16 yoa and died from heart failure.

    I've been told that blood is stools is also a symptom, but I've only seen blood in stools from huge worm loads in rescued dogs.

    Could be anything from regurgitating after eating, vomiting, inappetance, to no signs at all (often like people).

    Only when they get very bad do you see blackish/dark blood in the feces (digested blood) and/or vomiting blood.

    If you suspect ulcers, or your dog is having any GI signs at all, a trip to the vet is important to rule out many different conditions that can produce similar symptoms.

    Drooling can also be a common sign- a lot of dogs drool when their stomach is upset.

    Agreed on trip to vet!

    Not familiar with ulcer symptoms in dogs, but see my post on the dog accupuncture/chiro thread. I found a fantastic natural painkiller that won't cause ulcers...

    We're reining in the general pet threads to keep the forum more farm-related--please see the sticky at the top of the forum for more info.

    Thanks!
