Customer Question

I took one of my dogs to the vet for an ear infection and they put medicine in the ear. When I got home my other dog started licking her ear. Today she woke up throwing up. Are these 2 connected?

Hello. Thanks for writing in. My name is***** and I would be happy to help you. It is entirely possible that the medication caused some upset stomach. If she has vomited often, has bloody stool, seems lethargic or has no appetite; then I would be a little more concerned. I would recommend having her seen by a vet if that was the case. If she just vomited that one time but seems normal otherwise, taking up her food for 12-24 hours is a good idea. I hope this answers your questions. Please let me know if you have further concerns.

She has thrown up about 8 times today but that's because she was eating. She's still barking and running around. Should I see what happens over night?

Wow. That is a lot. If she is still running around, barking and doesn't seem to have any abdominal pain when you apply pressure from both sides; I can't argue with still monitoring overnight. You are right to assume that she may have continued vomiting because she was still eating. If she vomits anymore, though, I would have her evaluated tonight in case it wasn't the ear medication that caused the upset stomach. Make sure her gums are nice and pink as well. If they are pale or very bright, I would have her checked tonight. Hope this helps.
