I've had Ripley for three weeks now and we just had our first vet appt. She recommended worming with Drontal of which I am in favor. Unfortunately, after administering the medication, Ripley threw it all up right away. I called the vet we're going to try again tomorrow with Panacur. Has anyone had experience with this? Any suggestions for preventing vomiting with the new medication? Thanks, Mike and Ripley

I've never had a dog throw up drontal...or panacur, for that matter. They will try to spit it out though :rolleyes: If you don't have a finicky eater it may be easier to mix the powdered panacur in with some canned dog food. I prefer the liquid that I can just squirt in the back of their mouth though.

Truman had the nastiest, grossest, most discusting vomit when we dewormed him for the first time with Panacur. The vet said that Panacur is pretty innate. . .and the vomitting might have been a response to the mass killing of the worms, which released toxins. . . . . .which made him ill. (there were worms in his vomit too) We finished the Panacur treatment without any problems. . . .

If you're worming for tapes, you need the Drontal. If other worms, then Panacur will do the job. Good luck!

I've never had a dog vomit after Drontal, though it's true that you can be allergic to anything so it's not outside the realms of possibility that your dog doesn't tolerate it. Unlikely, but possible.

 

But if you just stuffed it down his throat with your fingers, it could have been a gag reflex. You don't have to starve a dog to give Drontal, so I normally wrap the tabs in something tasty and they eat them. :)

Wink got the Drontal shot when she was still groggy from her spay. My others have had the Drontal with no problems.

We've been fighting (and losing) the battle with hookworms for the past 7 months with our 9 year old retired Broodie, Vanessa. She's been on both DrontalPlus and Panacur at various times. Last week we dosed her again with DrontalPlus. We've not seen any vomitting related to the medication, but we're seeing a lack of appetite for 24-36 hours afterwards. And, about 24 ours after this past dosing, for the first time, our poor girl had the most horrible bloody diarrhea that I've ever seen. It cleared up quickly though. I'm not sure what is from the medication and what is possibly from the hookworms dying off.
