Hello, my name is***** am a licensed veterinarian and I will try and help you as best as I can.
Upset stomach can be due to a number of things: parasites, gastroenteritis, pancreatitis, foreign material ingestion, etc.
The starting point at home consists of trying one of two medications: pepcid AC (famotidine) or prilosec OTC (omeprazole). I would start with omeprazole, giving 20 mg orally once a day. You could also try famotidine at 10 mg every 12 hours. A bland diet of plain boiled chicken and plain white rice may also help. If there is no improvement within 24-48 hours, I recommend having her seen by your vet to make sure this is not more than just a mild upset stomach.
