Could a different brand pill be creating this difference ? She threw up 1 time then got a little bit of the runs she was doing really well until I got the refill

Hello, my name is***** and I would like to assist with your question. Is there any writing or symbols on this new pill? I want to be sure they sent the correct medication first.

Typically if a vet switches brands (which can happen when the company we buy drugs from switches from one generic to another), this would not cause any side effects in the pet. Enalapril is a medication that typically does not cause GI side effects.
