Now she's vomiting.

Antibiotics causing it?

Quite possibly..Kira gets sick from large doses of cephalexin.

I had better luck splitting the tabs/capsules in half and giving the dose full dose with a generous treat about an hour apart or with a partial meal.

My mother said she gave her the pill, and then fed her about an hour later, and she threw it all up.

After work I'm heading to my mom's house and will try feeding her and giving the antibiotic about 2 hours apart.

Feed first then meds, or meds then food?

Feed first, then give the pills about 20-25 minutes later.

What you're describing is very similar to what happened to my dog. After Ruca was spayed, she looked very strained every time she went to pee. We couldn't figure it out at first but we knew something wasn't right when she was trying to pee multiple times every time she went out. We took her to the vet and she was diagnosed with UTI and given anti-biotics. It cleared up after a few days.

I have no advice regarding the vomiting but I usually give my dogs their pills with their meal or after they eat.

She hasn't vomited again and I haven't noticed any blood in her urine since yesterday. She's really healing up quick, it's only been a few days and her incision is healed.

Yesterday, for the first time, she just decided to squat on my bed :po: She seems to have forgotten she's housebroken, and I hope it's just because of the recent surgery and will clear up later.

I've read about spays causing incontinence, I really hope that's not the case here.

I don't have much advice on the problem, but I always give antibiotics with her right after a meal with a small treat.

When Aala was spayed, she threw up a little the next morning. I came home from work and took her to the vet, she was fine though just a little upset tummy from the pain meds.

Hope she gets better soon, please keep us updated.
