Need Help and Advice
This got a little complicated. We returned Saturday from a 1700 mile trip to NC and SC and Keeper was in the Greenville, SC, show where he won BOB. He was fine on the trip and does not get carsick. On Monday (yesterday), he was due for his Parvo and Bordatella booster. On the way to the vet, he vomited bile and I was shocked. I told the tech and the vet. Last night he ate as normal and no vomiting. Six hours after the vaccines, he had a reaction to one of them--itchy eyes he continually pawed, itching all over his body. He was running in the house trying to get away from whatever was bothering him. I called the vet and by the time he called back (about 1/2 hour), Keeper was getting better. He advised 1/2 a 25 mg Benadryl which we gave. He slept well last night--one cough overnight but was fairly lethargic after his morning walk. Mid-morning he vomited again, not yellow but frothy white and we took him in to the vet again. She (other vet) advised and gave a pill for nausea and gave us one more for tomorrow. He cannot have water for 4 hours and no food until 8 p.m. Another Benadryl tonight. I'm puzzled--the first vomiting was prior to the vaccines. Any thoughts????
Thanks so much. We lost our beautiful Bolognese to IBD and I'll readily admit to paranoia.
