My dog is a 4 yr old Shih Tzu and weighs 9 lbs. She vomited

Customer Question

My dog is a 4 yr old Shih Tzu and weighs 9 lbs. She vomited early this morning her food from last night (Iam natural dog dry food for 1+), and again tonight after eating grass it was frosty. She drinks water, but hasn't ate anything all day. She has peed and pooped today and walk in the yard and went up and down the basement stairs. She seems to want to be held close. Is there anything I can give her?
