Although side effects are not common, as with all medications there is always a possibility that it may occur. Even allergic reactions could occur in some dogs. Consult your veterinarian immediately if you suspect that your dog is suffering from side effects or an allergic reaction. Vomiting and diarrhea or irritation of the skin could be indications that not all is well. It is important to ensure that products for dogs are only used on dogs. By using products meant for cats on dogs or vice versa, you could cause harm to your pet in the process.
