Q. I used am otc to treat my 3 month puppy for worms. Temp study around 103, womt eat amd water is vomited shortly after drinking.

Answered By

A. That temperature is a little high. It may not be related to the worms or the medication but the fact that it can't even keep water down I would suggest seeing your vet. As far as worm medication in future please use ones from your vet as they are much more effective than otc ones.
