Zofran (ondansetron) is particularly effective when used for severe vomiting in dogs (particularly when chemotherapy-induced). Most recommended dosages are 0.23 - 0.46 mg/lb every 12 hours. Cerenia (maropitant) is another good consideration and should be available through Sadie's vet. Consider an injectable form of any antiemetic at this time if for the only reason that anything given orally may not be retained until vomiting is well controlled.
