Hi, I'm Dr. Katie. I hope to be able to help you.
Is she on any medications or have any ointment/creams applied to her skin?
Sometimes when pets lick ointment it can cause GI upset and vomiting. What ingredients were in the ointment?
I wouldn't be surprised if the rash and vomiting were related. Sometimes the discomfort and licking the wounds can cause vomiting. I would hold off on applying anymore ointment in the meantime and place her in a cone (e-collar) to prevent her from licking the hot spots.
You can NPO her for 4-6 hours and if no vomiting, feed small amounts of rice and boiled chicken/hamburger.
If she doesn't vomit, you can slowly feed her more over the next 24-48 hours and transition her back to her regular diet.
Is there anything else I can help you with?
I hope Maya is feeling better soon!
