It's difficult to provide specific advice without knowing more details about your dog's symptoms and medical history. If you believe your dog may have eaten a salmon carcass, it's important to take them to a veterinarian as soon as possible. Eating a salmon carcass can cause a variety of symptoms, including anorexia, lethargy, and vomiting. The treatment for your dog will depend on the underlying cause of their symptoms. Doxycycline is a common antibiotic that is often used to treat bacterial infections in dogs, but it may not be appropriate in all cases. It's important to consult with a veterinarian who can assess your dog's condition and provide the appropriate treatment.
