My dog has vomited after receiving an antibiotic shot

Customer Question

Hello, my dog has vomited after receiving an antibiotic shot for a bladder infection. The first time was about an hour - hour and a half after - six times in the past 10 hours. It's bile-y at this point. Is this probably a side effect of the medication (he is very sensitive), or should I be more concerned? Also, the vet did not do any sort of testing, but rather after hearing his symptoms (lethargy as of yesterday morning, frequent urination, urinating smaller amounts and a tender bladder) simply gave him the antibiotic shot.
