My 2 year old 10lb mini Aussie has been itchy and not acting

Customer Question

My 2 year old 10lb mini Aussie has been itchy and not acting like herself and has had diarrhea/throwing up a few hours after eating for 24 hours. I thought it might have been a new food I've given her but I gave her a small amount of plain rice for dinner
to not upset her stomach tonight and she just threw that up and I think there is a small amount of blood in her vomit.
