Good Morning!

If this is a minor digestive disturbance, fast her for 12 hrs to allow her tract to calm down and heal. At this same time, give her 1/2 teaspoon of Pepto Bismol every 8 hrs. This will help your gal through this by coating her stomach.

Of course, if this continues during this fast, have your vet examine her. Especially because Snuggles is so small and fragile, the dehydration from vomiting can b serious for her.

Good Luck!!
