My dog may have worms and had her first dose of frontal

My dog may have worms and had her first dose of frontal plus. Took it with dinner and vomited about 4.5 hours later. She has emptied her stomach and wants water which makes her throw up more. Should I let her have the water! Are there any serious side effects I should worry about? Also will the dose be effective even though she threw it up? Thanks

I am a breeder of Airedales. The puppies are now 13 weeks

Good morning. I am a breeder of Airedales. The puppies are now 13 weeks old all puppies are healthy but last 3 of 2 I have sold. For the past three weeks they have had diarrhea. I have had stool samples checked...nothing growing. They have horrible diarrhea. Gaining weight, playing, eating. The new owners are angry. Have been treated with panacur, flagyl, probiotics.... Giardia, worms, coccidiosis,...nothing is growing, but this continues. My vet wants to finish this course of panacur and flagyl...then go on to clindamycin for 10 days. I do not have a ton of money..what do you think is going on

My Havanaise had diarrhea for about three days and I took

My Havanaise had diarrhea for about three days and I took him into the vet. I did not have a stool sample with me but they did go ahead and put him on five days of antibiotics. Within a day and a half of being off of the antibiotic the diarrhea started again. I waited a couple more days and then I had a sample which I took to the vet but it tested normal. The vet then decided to go ahead and put him on 10 days of antibiotics to see if that would help. He just finished a day and a half ago and again the diarrhea is starting again.JA: I'm sorry to hear that.

We have been struggling with a few bouts of diarrhea with

We have been struggling with a few bouts of diarrhea with both our dogs on and off recently. One had it about 3 weeks ago and got over it without treatment. The next had it about 2 weeks ago and had to go to the vet. She was given Metronidazole 250mg tablet giving half a tab every 12 hours for 8days. Her stools seemed to harden for the last few days but than she had two looser stools somewhat like ice cream consistency and greenish. Finally it seemed to get better but both were displaying sneezing more often and backwards kind of coughing and hacking. Once the medicine was over she was better for a day or two and than the diarrhea started up again along with our other dog. We still giving them chicken and rice and no new food had been added. We took them back to the vet on Wednesday and they did all blood work and full fecal exams and everything came back normal. They were both prescribed the metronidazole for 14 days and put of royal canine food. Stools are back to normal in our male dog but still a little mushy and yellow in our female dog! They are still sneezing here and there and have some eye boogers as well. I thought I maybe saw some sesame seed like white grains in I believe both of their stools. I called the vet and they gave our male dog Drontal Plus 68mg 1.5 tablets and our Female dog Cestex 100mg 1 tablet 1 time. Is there a reason these are different. Could this be something else and should I hold off on giving those dewormers and just stick with the metronidazole?

We had an infestation of live maggots crawling across our

We had an infestation of live maggots crawling across our backyard patio. The next two days I have seen apparently dead maggots in our dog poop. They don't look like round worm or tape worm to me. Could it be my dog ate maggots in his poop or elsewhere and they are passing through his system? Does he have worms? Do I need to take the poop and or worms to my vet?

Can someone please help me, I have two dogs (yes 2) with

Can someone please help me, I have two dogs (yes 2) with diarrhea. My German Shepard (12.5 yrs old)has had it since Monday evening and is being treated by his vet. They have given me 500 mg Metronidazole Tabs. 1 tablet twice daily for 7 days, we are on day 4 and still has the diarrhea. Now my Golden Retriever (6 yrs old) started with it this morning at 12:30am. Her has some substance but the Shepard it total liquid. I have been feeding him boiled ground turkey breast since he started. The Golden has been on her regular food but now I don't know what to do. Is it possible it't the turkey causing this? The Golden has only cleaned up tiny scraps that the Shepard dropped. I wouldn't think that would be enough to cause this. Can one dog get it from another, my Golden licks the Shepard food after he is done. I don't know what do, I have been cleaning up after them throughout the day and now it's time to feed them. I am afraid to feed!!!

I have a 35 lb border collie mix that has been tested three times now and has spirometra infection per stool analysis. I've been told praziquantel 430 micrograms for 2 days.....but I can't translate that into the available products I'm seeing. One person said milligrams and the other said micrograms and I think there's a big difference. suggestions? thank you!
