    Dog keeps throwing up after anesthesia

    Advertisements
    Anybody know what to do in this situation? Finn got his teeth cleaned today and was put under. Everything else is fine, he's in a good mood, but he keeps throwing up water. He has no appetite, I can't get him to eat anything, even people food. He's not acting sick at all, he's awake and playful, but every couple hours since we got home he just burps up a bunch of water. Really don't want to be cleaning up dog puke all night. Help?

    Ugh, sometimes dogs can be vomit-y after anesthesia. If your vet still open or have on-call hours? If so, ask for cerenia.

    No the vet is def not open. Is acepromazine safe? He's been awake since about 2pm if that matters at all.

    I was going to message you but fb said you were last active 3 hours ago so if you were busy I didn't want to bother you thank you though, I appreciate it. <3

    No, no no. Acepromazine is def not safe at all, and should honestly never be given to clients as it can have bad effects on dogs. I shouldnt say that- its safe, but dont use that ever after anesthesia, and I prefer to not use it at all

    Hahaha ok good to know. I have some left over from our last road trip but I wouldn't give it to him without being sure. Is there anything else to do for this or do I just try to keep him on tile all night?

    Most of the other anti-nausea OTC meds are for motion sickness and dont help with anesthesia related sickness. I would just keep him on the tiles and call the hospital in the AM to ask for cerenia

    Cleaning up mucus sucks.

    Hope your Finn feels better quickly.
