This could potentially be a serious issue. Best case scenario here is that she has gastroenteritis (inflammation of her gastrointestinal tract) secondary to foreign body ingestion and then the subsequent vomiting. Worst case scenario is that she has some of that foreign material still in her GI tract causing her pain and continued nausea. It would absolutely be prudent to have her evaluated by a veterinarian as soon as possible and to consider having radiographs (Xrays) performed to see if there is an evidence of a gastrointestinal obstruction. If cost is a huge factor, I would recommend not feeding her for 4 to 6 hours. Then offer water. If no vomiting, start offering small frequent feedings of a bland diet (plain boiled chicken and rice) every 4 to 6 hours and see how things go. If she starts vomiting, do not offer anything else by mouth and have her seen by a local veterinarian ASAP. Hope this helps and good luck to you both! -Dr. C
Hopefully she got it all up, and that she just doesn't feel great after vomiting 8x. Eating grass can be a sign of nausea, so I would still follow the bland diet approach as mentioned above, and have her evaluated if she refuses food, seems uncomfortable or has any vomiting.
That is great news! I'm hoping she continues to go in the right direction! It can be so stressful when our 4-legged kiddos are out of sorts! Let me know if you have any other questions! Take care - Dr. C
How are things going with your pup? If I've answered all your questions, do you mind giving me a rating? If I haven't answered all your questions, how else may I assist you? -Dr. C
