• My dog got the medicine for worms 2 days ago. She pooped out dead worms yesterday but lately she’s been making a gagging noise and her belly is still big. Should I be concerned?

    Hi Raven,
    I recommend that you call and talk to your local veterinarian about this question. This may be normal but it will depend on the amount of worms she had present and her overall health. Your vet knows your pet and can give you the best advice on this. If you see any other signs like vomiting, diarrhea, not wanting to eat, or lethargy, I recommend that you take her back in to see a veterinarian.
