Q. I have just removed a tick from my small Bichon. She has been vomiting for 36 hours I thought something she ate. Is there anything I can do now
A. Withhold food for 24 hours. Allow small amounts of water or unflavored PediaLyte. Resume feeding a bland diet (boiled boneless/skinless chicken and plain white rice) in small, frequent amounts. If the vomiting stops, transition slowly to the regular diet. If not, see your veterinarian. Consider a monthly topical flea and tick preventative such as Frontline Plus, K9 Advantix or Vectra.
