Customer Question

I gave my dog her worming tablets this morning, but she was sick at half past 12. Is that long enough for the tablets to have dissolved or do I need to re-worm her?

If the medication was given 2-3 hours before she vomited the worming tablets should have been dissolved, digested and out of her stomach/absorbed. There should be no need to re-dose her.

But if she vomited less than 2 hours after the tablets were given, or you saw any signs of the tablets in her vomitus, she needs to be re-dosed.
