Answer:

It's going to be hard for me to recommend anything for you without examining him and getting a detailed history because there are so many causes of vomiting. So see your veterinarian if it continues and/or worsens.

Question:

Hello, Used Petmeds flea protection and my dog has thrown up. I used the amount suggested for size and weight. What should I do?

Answer:

Call and speak directly to the manufacturer - their contact information should be somewhere on the packaging or the package insert. If I knew what product I could get it for you, so if you can't find it, send me another question with what product you used.

Question:

My dog started throwing up and he has swollen looks like bite marks on his face and eyes they're swelling bad

Answer:

If allergic reactions like this are caught early, they will often respond to oral human antihistamines like benadryl, but since your dog is vomiting, his reaction sounds a little more severe, so I would recommend seeing your local veterinarian.

Question:

I've taken my cat to the vet and they x rayed and blood tested her, nothing turned up and they said shes health. BUT she vomit her food all the time. I only feed her Non additives, no grain dry and wet food. I tried boiled chicken but she still vomits. I give her forte flora and Lysine in her food. She is 12 years old not.

Answer:

They may need to eventually run more tests (intestinal biopsies, etc.) but a diet for senstive stomachs may help like this one: https://www.petco.com/shop/en/petcostore/product/hills-science-diet-adult-sensitive-stomach-and-skin-chicken-and-rice-recipe-dry-cat-food

TopicSalivating
vet-qa-signature
Question:

My one year old German Shepherd/Hound has been waking up with a lot of saliva coming from her mouth. It’s clear, doesn’t smell funny, she has been eating, drinking, playing, normal bowel movements. But I just noticed the last few days it’s a lot more than normal. I don’t see cuts, broken teeth, I don’t feel lumps. I can’t get into a vet for weeks, and don’t think it’s emergent enough to go into a vet if she is acting fine.

Answer:

This could be many things - I would really need to examine her to really start guessing: could be a problem with the mouth but often salivating like that can mean nausea, which can have many underlying causes, so see your local veterinarian if it continues or worsens.

TopicVomiting n heartworms question
vet-qa-signature
Question:

Wondering what would happen if I missed a heartworm medication for my dog last month and she's just vomiting today but she's active

Answer:

The vomiting would not be from missing the heartworm tablet last month (it takes 6 months, at a minimum, for dogs to become symptomatic and vomiting is not usually a sign) so the vomiting is due to somethine else. There are many causes of vomiting. Add to that, it is often hard to differentiate coughing, reverse sneezing, regurgitation, and vomiting. So see your veterinarian if it continues and/or worsens.

Question:

My cats coat looks very dull messy and grayish her eyes look dull her stomach is swollen and her butt is swollen?

Answer:

I would really need to examine her and get more history (age, how long all of these things have been going on, etc.) to really even start to advise you about any of this. With as much as she has going on, you will get your money's worth from one veterinary office visit. They will more than likely want to run some blood. Take a same-day fecal sample with you as well so they can analyze it.

Question:

my dog will not eat without throwing up, black tarlike stool, very gassy

Answer:

With the vomiting and black stool (this is often digested blood), it really is ideal to go ahead and see your veterinarian for a definitive diagnosis and more targeted treatment. If that isn't immediately an option, a good probiotic like this one: https://www.1800petmeds.com/Fast+Balance+GI+Paste-prod10905.html And a broad spectrum dewormer is another good idea - even if she was properly dewormed as a pup - one that covers whipworms & Giardia is often helpful and won't hurt, like this one - be sure the active ingredient is fenbendazole: https://www.1800petmeds.com/Safe+Guard+Canine+Dewormer-prod12324.html
