    DefaultVomiting?

    Okay, sorry that this isn't lab-related, but my mom's chihuahua needs some help, and I figured more people would see this here.

    My mom's chihuahua and jack russell got into a little spat yesterday. Not exactly sure how it happened, but the chihuahua had a tooth knocked loose, that eventually fell out (the root and all came out, so a fragment isn't still in there). We gave him a coated-aspirin last night to help with the pain, and we've been giving him soaked food. Today, however, he has vomited 3 times, and we're not sure why. I was just wondering if anyone knew something that she could give him to help with the nausea/sickness. Thanks guys.

    How much does the dog weigh and how much aspirin did you give?

    He's about 10 lbs, and we gave him 81 mg of Bayer Low Dose(enteric coated).

    We just gave him one last night. He seems to feel better today (other than the vomiting), so we didn't give him another one. He's not lethargic or anything. Just the vomiting.

    The dose might have been too high for him. LINKY. I would probably withhold food for 24 hours, offer bits of water, and slowly introduce food back.

    We thought that the aspirin may be the culprit. He's already eaten his dinner and he had his appetite. Hopefully the aspirin will get out of his system and he won't get sick anymore.

    Thanks for all your help!
