We gave our dog a deworming medication yesterday and after that he's been having diarrhea and refusing food. A vet said it's a side effect and everything should be all righty soon. But it's freaks me out that we were not warned. I had no idea deworming can be so stressful!! Are there other side effects we should be aware of and be expecting?
Hi,

Vomiting and diarrhea are very common, indeed. It happens because the worms get expelled, and some people do not consider these unpleasant situations to be side effects but rather a sign that the medication is working. If vomiting occurs more than 1-2 times and if loose stool persists, a dog needs to see a vet. Other alarming signs are loss of appetite, refusal to drink, refusal to play and other behavior changes. If a dog has heavy worm impact, it can develop intestinal obstruction, that's why it's important to watch your dog closely after deworming and show it to a vet if the above mentioned symptoms are present.

Diarrhea and vomitting are most common, allergy can happen too but it's rare. Pay attention to overdose symptoms like intense drooling, twitching, staggering, general weakness, head pressing, paralysis. Call a vet in this case.
