I'm sorry that your question wasn't answered in a timely manner. I would ask you to "watchful wait" at this point. While anorexia and vomiting are important symptoms, they're not pathognomonic (specifically indicative) of any one particular disorder. In fact, they can represent more disorders than I could post in tis venue and they may or may not be related to her pregnancy. We need a track record before I would have you bring her to her vet to be examined and X-rays or ultrasound of her abdomen performed - the diagnostic of choice if her symptoms persisted. Encouraging her to eat is certainly reasonable, however. Meat baby foods are usually very attractive to dogs.Have any other untoward symptoms arisen since you posted?
