Q. My 7yr old pinscher had abscess took him to the vet and they gave him a antibiotics shot but he is losing a lot of weight and has been throwing up
DR. MASSIMO ORIOLES, DVM, MRCVS
A. I would recommend to take him to your veterinarian as soon as possible for a check up, as weight loss is a concerning sign.
It is difficult, from what you are describing, to establish if the abscess is linked or not to the vomiting episodes and the weight loss (would depend on where the abscess was located, if the infection has spread somewhere else etc etc).
The antibiotics might have caused the vomiting episodes or these signs may be related to a gastroenteritis of other origin.
