    Default Another vomiting thread

    Last Tuesday I gave Bella Bravecto for fleas and ticks. She threw up bile (I'm assuming--it was yellow and mucous-like) that night and again the next morning. As I understand it, this is normal after a dose of Bravecto. After that morning vomit, Bella was fine for a week.

    Then, yesterday morning Bella threw up more bile and again this morning.

    I had the vet look at her today. I told the vet that I feed her breakfast in the a.m. and then dinner around 5PM or 6PM. I asked her if I should feed Bella lunch, too. The vet said that a lack of lunch shouldn't cause this. She thinks that, after her dinner meal, Bella is going too long without food. She wants me to feed her a treat (she suggested Milk Bone) right before bed. That'll keep her from vomiting bile every morning.

    The vet said that I should give her Pepcid if the before-bed treat doesn't work.

    Agree? Is Milk Bone the best treat or should I try something else?

    I would skip the milk bone. a lot of members here give rice cakes before bed. It is common for a bully to vomit bile because of an empty stomach. If I do not feed Brutus by 10 am he will vomit bile.

    I have to give mine a 10 PM treat or Wellie will also vomit bile.

    What I do is, give them 3/4 of a cup of their food at dinner, then the other 1/4 at 10 PM.
    @Cali Doll mine are also on Bravecto. First time I gave it to Blue, he vomited as well. Seems to be a common side effect.

    No milk bone. Like Rosalie said, try a plain jane rice cake, or a super small portion of her reg. food.

    My whole heart, Tyson.

    It's hilarious to hear them crunch on it, LOL I give it to Tyson in pieces I break off, because he likes to inhale things! But he loves it, he'll drool when I take one out. Hah! Just make sure you get the plain ones, no flavor, no nothing.

    My whole heart, Tyson.

    Almost all of the rice cakes have salt! The only plain, salt-free version is the wheat kind. That's OK, right?

    Awesome, we get the low sodium ones but if you found sodium free that's fantastic, good to hear she was normal this morning!
