Hi there, you are through to Dr Linda, a UK based vet.

I'm sorry to hear this and understand your concern for Tinkerbell.

Which wormer was used?

Is she losing weight?

Are her gums pink and wet?

I brought one from pets at home I’m not sure what it’s called she’s not losing weight but she isn’t eating properly and seems to be more thirsty her gums are pink and wet
Customer: replied 15 days ago.
She’s recently started throwing up but only the 3 times

Thank you.It's very important we use a broad acting wormer that's effective such as Panacur. It treats most common parasites. Some products only treat e.g. roundworms.I'd also start a probiotic anti diarrhoea paste such as protexin prokolin which can be purchased online or from a pet shop.I'd feed just chicken and rice little and often to settle her gut.If signs persist or she seems poorly, a vet visit is best. They'll examine her and may analyse her stool.

Take care,

Linda.
