This is what the throw up looks like

Hello this is Dr. Paul.  I have over 10 years of clinical experience working on dogs and cats in general practice and emergency medicine situations. It is my pleasure to assist you today with Shuri.  one moment while i review your question

I'm sorry to hear this.  Is she currently taking any medications?  Have you changed her food at all in the last few weeks?

Hi she is not, but she did get spayed back in September though
I haven’t changed her food but I did get a new bowl and a water fountain about a month or so back

ok thank you.  is she still eating well?

she has been eating well and drinking her water

ok that is encouraging. Hopefully this is just an upset stomach or stomach virus.   I would start treating with the following: 1) Do not feed any solid foods for the next 24 hours, but continue to provide plenty of water.  2) After 24 hours, if we are not having any vomiting, you can feed a small amount of canned food such as fancy feast 3) Begin giving a probiotic for pets such as fortiflora which you can get from your local pet store or Amazon.     Begin switching back to normal food if vomiting is improving after 3-4 days

If you notice any persistent vomiting for over 12 hours, lethargy, or blood in the stool then i would go to a veterinarian immediately, but I think this is unlikely to occur in this case

Okay I will try that out
Thank you so much
Perfect thank you so much

you are welcome. I wish her the best of luck
