Good Morning and welcome! I am Dr. Loretta, a licensed veterinarian and I am happy to answer your question. I am so sorry that Barbie is not feeling well. It is not unusual for sensitive dogs such as Barbie to develop a mild digestive disturbance after the stress of being groomed. For this, the treatment is as follows: Fast Barbie for 12-24 hrs to allow the digestive tract to calm down and heal.Give her Pepcid AC or Famotidine at 0.5 mg per pound every 8 hrs. That can be purchased over the counter at the pharmacy.Give only small amounts of water during the fast or ice cubes After the fast, feed rice and boiled chicken (2/1)If the vomiting and lethargy have resolved, then wean sweet little Barbie back onto regular food. If the vomiting persists especially during the fast, take Barbie to your vet for an exam and lab work to determine the cause for this. This is extremely important since this can cause dehydration or other more serious concerns. She does not need an antibiotic now unless your vet determines that there is an infectious cause for this distress so the Baytril will not be required. Does that make sense to you? Please let me know if you have ANY other questions. My goal is to give you 100% satisfaction and if you are not yet satisfied, please REPLY so I can clarify for you. Sincerely, ***** *****
