My oldest bitch Jewel (17+) had a stroke just over a week ago. The vet prescribed Vivitonin but she retched every time I gave her a tablet despite me trying all sorts of ways to give it to her.
I've now had to stop but would like to know if anyone else has had this reaction to Vivitonin.? If so was an alternative found? I am at present giving her Cocculus (homeopathic).
I queried with my vet about the colouring ised in the tablet coating but he doesn't think thst was the cause and said that occasionally dogs have this reaction. It is very strange because as soon as the tablet touched her throat she began the retching.
Mind you, she is going on well despite the lack of conventional medicine but I would like to have a fallback if there is one.
