Friend, the vomiting could be the result of drinking too much water. The big question is: Why is she drinking more than usual? This could be a sign of either: An active infection, hormonal disorders, kidney or liver disease, etc. to name a few questions. To determine the exact underlying cause she will need to have a recheck exam and some testing by family veterinarian. In the meantime for the vomiting this is what you can do:

1- Continue on Pepcid AC as recommended by family veterinarian.
2- No food or water for 8-12 hours. Need to give her gastrointestinal tract time to rest.
3- After 8-12 hours offer a small amount of water. Wait half hour, if no vomiting, offer small amount of rice (50%) and boiled boneless chicken or ground beef (50%) 4-6 times a day. Keep on this diet for several days then wean into regular diet.
4- Follow up with your family veterinarian for a hands on examination in the morning.

Please do not forget to rate my answer - I hope you found it to be excellent. If there’s more I can do, please use the reply tab and let me know. It’s my goal to provide you with excellent service." Thank you for your business and I hope to work with you again soon!

I have her pepcid but she threw up right away.
Dog Veterinarian: Dr. Peter, Veterinarian replied 2 years ago

Hold on the pepcid ac for several hours until she is not longer vomiting. Then, you can try giving it again. If she vomits again do not give her anymore, wait until the morning your vet will give her injected medication.

Please reply if you have additional questions.

Nothing I can stop her vomiting? If she starts vomiting again?
Dog Veterinarian: Dr. Peter, Veterinarian replied 2 years ago

Nothing given orally; at this point the only thing you can do at home is not give her anything orally or else she will continue to vomit. She will need to be given all medication injected to bypass the gastrointestinal tract.

My dog is having colitis related problems. He had a colitis
He had a colitis flare up on 19 Feb. - Initial symptoms were passing a lot of wind, discomfort. His stool started off okay, but by the third one it was mucusy. I went to the vet and she gave him a steroid injection. He responded within a couple of days and went back to normal. 7 days later, the symptoms returned. He was gassy again and his stool comtained a lot of mucus plus a small dot of red blood. The vet prescribed prednicare tablets - 2 a day for 5 days, and then 1 a day for 10 days. He responded very well, until day 8 (today) - he won't eat today - his stomach is making gurgling noises, and he is eating grass. He hasn't vomited so far, and his stools are normal. What do you think is happening, and what can I do to help him - should I withhold food for today? … read more
