Therapies to consider include:

1) Starting a bland diet such as boiled chicken and rice (2/3 rice and 1/3 chicken).

2) Antacids for stomach upset such as Famotidine (Pepcid A/C) - LINK HERE or Prilosec OTC (Omeprazole) - LINK HERE

3) Pedialyte for hydration - LINK HERE

4) Prescription medications for nausea from your veterinarian such as Cerenia (LINK HERE) or Zofran (LINK HERE)

5) Appetite stimulants such as Remeron (LINK HERE)

Hopefully this just needs a little time with no other signs of illness.

If the signs really do not resolve,
I would consider an abdominal ultrasound.

This will give you a completely NON-invasive and easy look at all of the abdominal organs - the stomach, intestines, liver, spleen, pancreas, etc.

That will help determine if there is a belly infection or pancreatitis which can explain your signs as well, and better help direct specific therapy.
