My 15 year old yellow lab mix had a upper molar dental

Customer Question
My 15 year old...

My 15 year old yellow lab mix had a upper molar dental extraction on Wed. and was give anti-biotics for 2 days after and Tramadol 1 to 2 every 12 hours as needed. She seemed fine after the procedure, but yesterday she vomited all her food and is gagging and trying to vomit now after on can of food. Is this normal?

Veterinarian's Assistant: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?

I am wondering if I should not be giving her any food until she stops vomiting / gagging? She is hungry and otherwise seems fine except for the vomiting & gagging.

Veterinarian's Assistant: OK got it. Last thing — JustAnswer charges a fee (generally around $19) to post your type of question to Dog Veterinary Experts (you only pay if satisfied). There are a couple customers ahead of you. Are you willing to wait a bit?

Yes

Hello,

I am sorry to hear you are worried about your dog. My name is Rebecca. I am a veterinarian and will do my best to help.

No, vomiting and gagging would not be normal. Since it has been 3 days since the molar extraction, it may not be related to that. Antibiotics can cause vomiting; have you finished them or is she still taking them?

Are her gums pink in color?

If her gums are pink and she has an appetite, this is probably not serious. You might just let her have liquids for the rest of the day and see if she keeps that down. If the vomiting and gagging persist, then you should have her checked out by her veterinarian. Let me know what other questions you have.
