The chicken might be part of the reason that she's vomiting. It's not uncommon for human food to cause this with dogs; they're not nearly as used to the regular dietary changes that people are.So long as she's not diabetic, it's safe to pick up both her food and water for about 6 hours. Whenever you're able, she can take a single dose of famotidine (see dosage here: http://www.petplace.com/article/drug-library/library/over-the-counter/famotidine-pepcid) to help calm her stomach. As soon as the 6 hours as passed, she should be feeling much better. You can then introduce small amounts of her regular food and small amounts of water slowly over a few hours. You can give her progressively more as time goes on until she's eating the full amount that she'd normally eat. If her vomiting persists over 12 hours, it's a good idea to have her examined by a veterinarian and given an injectable medication for nausea which will work whether she's vomiting or not.If my answer has helped you, please take the time today to leave positive feedback for me.
