Welcome! I am Dr. Altman, a licensed veterinarian and happy to answer your questions today.
First, congratulations on your new addition! I hope you have many happy years together :)
I can give you some suggestions for tonight but it is fairly common for a dog to enter a new situation and be quite anxious and not eat/ drink right away, even have some gi upset as well (especially little dogs like Chi's).
- Take a walk with her. Get her out for at least 15 minutes on a leash walk. This opens the mind to the new experience and helps you both form a bond together. I would do this 2-3 times daily at first to help her mind move forward but also tire the mind and body as well as increasing her hunger and desire to drink
- Do not coddle her, allow her to investigate and come to you when she is ready. Coddling the nervous mind can tell her it's ok to be scared and can increase her anxiety
- Feed her small frequent meals of white rice and boiled chicken
for 24-48 hours, picking up any portions remaining after 10 minutes. Start with 1 tsp hourly then increase the volume while reducing the frequency throughout the next few days. If the vomiting continues then it is time to have a veterinarian evaluate her. You can add a small amount of water to the little bits of food to keep her hydrated
I hope this information makes sense but please let me know how else I can assist you both. Again congratulations !!!!
