Hi there,

Excellent - you have done everything right!

Following the vomiting, what to watch for is continued GI upset. If you are to see any signs at all, they may be GI signs such as continued vomiting, anorexia, or diarrhea.

You may want to feed a bland diet such as boiled chicken or rice for the next several days.

Aside from that, you should not see any bad signs.

I hope this information is helpful.
