Hi. Welcome to Just Answer. My name is***** Thank you for your question about Skye. I'm sorry to hear about about her upset stomach. The gurgling that you're hearing is the contractions of the intestinal tract pushing air and liquid through it. A lot of gurgling can be associated with intestinal upset. The fact that she vomited is an external sign of the upset she's having. Is this due to eating something that didn't sit well? Is it due to something foreign being eaten that may not be passing? Is it due to something that has been eaten that is more of a chemical / toxic irritant? Could it be due to a metabolic kidney or liver issue? Could it be an infection? There are lots of possibilities here. At this time, the best that can be done at home is to pull food and water for 8 hours to let the stomach rest and then starting water and food. Obviously if the vomiting continues or she gets more dumpy, then getting to a vet to have them evaluate her is best.
The stomach torsion is classically where they attempt to vomit but get nothing up. They also are bloated in their abdomen and have a lot of discomfort. This is a very bad situation and progresses quickly. This doesn't sound like that. Here is a very good link on it.
It sounds like the environment is pretty well controlled. Some dogs have environments where the sky is the limit as to what they can possibly get into. Having younger kids in the house really helps to keep parents on their toes about what any small child or pet can get into. But the other possibility there is that now sometimes toys, socks, etc.. can be left out that the pet really likes to chew on / eat.
