    After taking my dog to the vet on Saturday for a swollen lymph node I discovered she has fleas on Monday. Last night she had an allergic reaction to the bites, so I dabbed on some calamine lotion. She has now spent the day being sick and i feel terrible. Taking her back to the vet tonight as I am so worried. I am a nervous wreck and need some moral support!

    You know our pets are like our children and we do worry, however, all I would say to you try not to be unduly worried as your dog will pick up on this. Not sure what you believe the connection is with the lotion and the sickness though. It could be she has just picked up a 24 hour bug.

    Keep you chin up - you are doing the right thing by taking her to the vet. Keep us posted. :smile:
