Dog ate dinner after...

Dog ate dinner after taking her meds. She threw up 10 minutes after eating and taking pills. I don’t know if she got any meds in her system or not

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. The Expert will know if the dog will be able to digest that. What is the dog's name and age?

Fiona,8 year old pit mix

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Fiona?

She has an inoperable brain tumor and is on 5 mg prednisone 2x a day and 64.8 mg of prednisone 2x a day

Hello again Noelle,

Sorry to hear about Fiona's medical problems, however, I have worked out an answer for you below.

This a very short answer I know but it 100% covers your question. If she thoroughly vomited just ten minutes after taking these pills then the chances are that she brought them back up with her dinner, they may have dissolved so you may not see them but the active constituent will be in the vomit, you will be taking very little risk if you give her another dose now.

But in any case, I should be available online for you for the next four or five hours today so please do not hesitate to get straight back to me if Fiona's condition changes in any way or indeed if you would like to talk things over with me further.

Regards,

Dr Scott

Thank you , I was able to get s hold of vet and they said full dose or half dose would be ok just incase

Glad to talk this over with you further ...

1. Well, that would be a safe approach, that's for sure, and very good advice, I am personally not sure it would be necessary though ...
