If your pet vomits after receiving medication, please check to see if the medication is in the vomitus and note how long after the medication was given the vomiting occurred. Please call our office for recommendations. Please do not just administer another dose.
Why is this important?
It is important to know how long after receiving a medication or what medication it is that was so we may better assist you into taking the next best step.
How do I know if they got any of their medication into their system?
If you are unable to find the pill or capsule within the vomitus, it would probably be safe to assume that the pill remained within the pet. Please call our office if you have any questions in regards to this.
What should I do if this happens?
If your pet happens to vomit after getting an oral medication we have no way of determining how much of that drug was absorbed during that period of time so it is best to consult with the prescribing veterinarian.
