    DefaultReaction to Drontal Plus XLWormer

    Our Lab Albie who is just 11 months old, had the three Drontal Plus XL tablets as prescribed by the vet, yesterday morning. he has been sick over night and a little lethargic this morning, could this be due to the wormer?
    Also, typical Lab, we are 90% sure he swallowed a 50p coin yesterday afternoon we are not sure if this may have something to do with it as well.
    Can any one help!

    I would add that Albie is big for his age and most people are surprised when told how old he is.

    I am not sure about side effects from the wormer you used. Our vet perscribes virbantel, and with it you only have to give 1 pill and you're done. I don't know how large a 50p coin is... Labs swallow all kinds of strange things. When you say he has been sick, do you mean vomiting and/or diarrhea? I would call the vet and see if the wormer could do it and ask if Albie needs an xray for the coin. I hope he gets better fast!

    Dear Sophiesmama,
    Many thanks for the response, Albie had been sick during the night but all that we saw was a pool of phleghm/bile type liquid. He has now returned to his usual self so we are very relieved about that. With regard to the coin we have seen no evidence of it and we are not 100% sure he had it. So we may have to wait a bit on that one.
    Many thanks once again.

    You're sure welcome. For future reference, our vet told us once that when a dog vomits biley froth, it means their stomach is nauseated, but empty. Kind of like our dry heaves. When that happens, I was told to give small sips of water only and let the stomach rest. Our Sophie yanked a curtain down today. It was on a spring tension rod with rubber caps on each end. One of them is missing, so we don't know if she ate it! Those labs, they will eat anything! I am sure glad Albie is doing well. Welcome to the forum! We'd love to see pictures!
