Thread: Advise after a vomit

  1. #1

    Default Advise after a vomit

    Yesterday my 10 week old Labrodore Puppy recieved her 2nd needles from the local vet in the morning. I waited till late in the afternoon and gave her a comfortis chewable and a drontal chewable. roughly 2 hours later she vomited up 2 piles of food. She has since appeared to be much better and had a good appetite today and has not vomited since.

    My question is, should i give her another dose of these 2 chewable tablets she has vomited, or were the 2 hours enough to get into her system.

    You will need to check with the vet for safe dosages of the tablets you gave her. No-one here could possibly advise you.
    Just call them, they should be happy to advise you on the phone, well mine would be.

    The advice on the Comfortis packet is that it's not for pups under 14 weeks. The only flea treatment I know that is, is Frontline and I believe it is safe in conjunction with Comfortis too, but check with your vet.

    In general, it is common for dogs to vomit after their first dose or doses of Comfortis. It usually gets better when their bodies get used to it.

    The vomit is not uncommon as a reaction to the injection either so I would be careful. The question was about re giving the tablets, the pup is only very young alot f chemicals in one little body.

    Things I wished the vet had told me...

    The puppy / dog may feel a bit off after a C5 vaccination. For a day or so.

    Best not to give the vaccination with anything else like heart worm injection (it's commonly done by vets - give all the stuff at once, but the actual recommendations on the drug packs say not to give with anything else).

    Best not to flea treat at the same time either.

    Has your puppy got a flea or worm problem right now?
