What flea treatment are you using with Nova?

I have been studying about Nexguard and a few others and many of those have nasty side effects similar to what Nova is having, even way after the treatment is applied or given. Sometimes even weeks later, scary.

I'm betting this is not the case with you, but still thought I would bring it up just in case since I keep reading about similar symptoms.

My old horse has had bad reactions to some vaccines so only gets one at a time. My dog with food allergies throws up from heart guard and has to take sentinel for heartworm prevention instead. He also gets sick and very bad diarrhea from any chicken or peanut butter.
So it could be the vaccines. Or eating the part of the toy and foamy vomit can be symptoms of a minor blockage so it's good you saw the vet.

AthenaLove - At the moment she has a puppy safe flea collar, not sure of the brand, but she's had that for 6 weeks now.

Shadowmom - Thank you for your input. Nova hasn't had any symptoms since Monday morning (that's when I took her to the vet and she started the medication). She finished the medication today, so will see in the next 1-2 days if she is still alright with her little tummy.

I have sorted out her toys and got better quality chew toys for more persistent chewers, so this doesn't happen again.

I've also looked into this to have at home if she gets sick again on a weekend https://k9essentials.co.nz/online/sh...achtonic-25ml/

Has anyone tried something similar? I'm unsure of the ingredients.

I'm glad Nova's okay!

Laurel is very little and has vaccine issues. It's better to space them out and it's hard not to beat yourself up when it's YOUR puppy who winds up being a statistic.

The more we know, the safer we can make our vaccines, though. Children in the US routinely received a "live" pertussis vaccine as recently as the early '90s. It was much more dangerous than the one we have now. I had to sign a bunch of waivers to get my vaccine-sensitive kid into the program for testing the "new Japanese vaccine" instead of just leaving him unimmunized but I'm glad I took the chance.

That's how medicine progresses. We need to do the same with our dogs. The final parvo shot made my dog itch to the point that she might be on meds for the rest of her life. But if she hadn't been vaccinated, she would not have a life.

Thank you for your reply. Yeah I’m a little bit nervous about the next vet visit/last shot. But unfortunately we really need to immunise her especially the area we are in had a big parvo out break last year.

I thought I'd give a little update. After Nova's vomiting cleared up, it went the other way! She was constipated, so she pooped less and it was rock hard and I could see it was hard for her to 'get it out'. I added a little bit of homemade pumpkin mash and apple cider vinegar to her meals and the constipation cleared up a little bit, but still not 100% better.

When I checked her poop through the plastic bag, I noticed there were hard, crystal like pieces in it. I knew she had no toy like that and also had been watching her like a hawk, so I could assume she hadn't eaten anything in the house/yard.

The only thing with that consistency she had frequent access to was her edible, puppy-friendly Nyla bone.

I'm 99.9% sure her digestive problems were caused by not being able to properly digest that bone and/or not chewing it properly and just swallowing it.

Since then I chucked the bone out and all her issues have completely resolved showed me that just because it says its puppy friendly/age appropriate, doesn't mind it's good for your individual puppy.
