Q. Hi! Just got a 8wk maltipom, he keeps vomiting after I fed him overnight can dog food. Just wondering if this is serious, & is Dettol pet friendly?

Answered By

A. Is this the same dog food he was on prior to you adopting him? It could be him adjusting to a new food and new environment. I would also suggest monitoring and measuring proper intake of his food based on his size. Some dogs tend to overindulge past the point of what their tummies can handle. As for Dettol, I would contact the manufacturer to double check pet safety.
