Hi, I can help you with your question today.
It is very common to see vomiting and diarrhea after ingestion of large amounts of bone. How long ago did she last vomit? Has she eaten any food today?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

About 1 hour, no she won't eat anything.

Expert:  brisadog replied 2 years ago.
OK. Benadryl will not help in this situation.
For now, do not offer any food until at least morning. She should not have vomited for at least 10-12 hours before she eats. She can drink. In fact, I recommend offering dilute chicken broth or water from a tuna can to encourage her to drink well and stay hydrated.
You can give 1/2 tablet of Pepcid once daily.
Once the vomiting has resolved, you can offer a bland home cooked diet of boiled white rice and boiled chicken. You can also mix a probiotic with her food once daily. You can use a veterinary product like Fortiflora or Proviable, or you can use a human product like Culturelle.
Please let me know if you have further questions. I am happy to continue until I provide the service that you seek.
