Hello, I am sorry to hear you are worried about your dog. My name is***** am a veterinarian and will do my best to help.

If these are nuts, are you sure it is from a Bradford pear? These tress produce fruit that look like berries, not nuts. The berries are not toxic, according the toxicologist I checked with.

Anytime a dog is vomiting and not eating, dehydration becomes a concern, regardless of the cause. If you look at her gums, are they pink in color? If her gums seem pale, she should see your veterinarian.

I usually treat vomiting dogs with an injection for the vomiting, since they will probably vomit any pills they are given. You could try giving her some Pepcid AC, famotidine, 5 milligrams per 10 to 20 pounds of body weight twice daily, but if she does not keep that down, I would have her checked by your veterinarian. If she cannot keep any liquids like water or broth down, she probably needs medical attention.
