Hello, this Dr. RB... My advice to you is that Butters needs to see your a veterinarian right away. Since you are on the west coast, I would advice you to take her to your nearest 24 hour emergency animal hospital. Because puppies are so curious and eat things they should not, they have increased risk of gastrointestinal obstruction which is an emergency condition that could require surgery. Even if the sheet rock is not causing an obstruction, it is causing inflammation within the gastrointestinal tract and she will need help to cease her vomiting and prevent dehydration, especially given she is a toy breed. Abdominal x-rays or ultrasound will be the only way to determine if an obstruction is occurring and if surgery is warranted. let me know if you have other questions/clarification about this..
