I am pet sitting with a Regale. I think she is about 9-12

Customer Question

I am pet sitting with a Regale. I think she is about 9-12 months old. She starting throwing up yesterday after playing in the yard with the neighbors dog. I was outside with her and did not see her eat anything strange. Since then she has thrown up 3 more times. She has eaten a small amount of dry food and is drinking water. Her vomit just seems to be bile and hair with very small amount of solids. Kind of orange in color. I tried to give her some pepto bismol but she wouldn't take it. She doesn't feel like she has a fever but I don't have a pet thermometer.
I would appreciate any guidance you can give.

Hi Jean this is Dr. Gabby. About how much would you say she weighs? Is she having diarrhea too? Is she still active and playful or lethargic?
