• i have a few questions regarding my 4month old puppy, Koa. Last Saturday he completed his shots including the rabies shot, but i failed to asked some questions to the vet that assisted us. i was hoping you can help me. My first question was, is it okay now to bring Koa outside to play in the dog park? and what kind of treat would you suggest for him. and this morning at around 3:30 am i noticed that there are 3 spots of beer foam like liquid by his bed. i am not sure if he threw up or that is his pee. My husband told me that he saw that first time before after Koa's vaccine appointment, so i am not sure if it's cause the vaccine or if that is normal for puppy and dog? thank you.

    Hi Vea,
    I recommend that you call and talk to your local Banfield Hospital about this question. The safety of going to the dog park or other communal places will depend on her overall vaccine status and the risk in your local area. If the foamy spots have continued it will be best to have her seen by a veterinarian. These spots can be from vomiting but it could also be from coughing or over salivating. Vomiting can be a side effect of vaccines but there can be other causes for this as well. Even if the foamy spots have stopped you should let your local vet know that you saw these. If it is a vaccine reaction then it is important that your vet knows about it so they can recommend the best care going forward. Since your vet knows your pet they will be able to give you the best advice on all of these questions.
