Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you today.

Is there a pattern to her vomiting? Before breakfast, after eating quickly, overnight, etc?

Have you tried anything else when giving the tablets besides the bologna?

Are her gums pink or pale/white? Moist or sticky?

Has she been drinking more, passing more/watery urine, or had any diarrhea?

If you press on her belly, any discomfort, tenderness, or tensing?

Could she have eaten something she should not have (ie bones, toys, plants, chemicals, etc)?
