Good Morning and welcome! I am Dr. Loretta, a licensed veterinarian and I am happy to answer your question.

I am so sorry that it has taken so long to get an answer but it appears that your sweet Shelby is suffering from Kidney Failure. This vomiting , anorexia and lethargy and blood in the vomit all point to Kidney disease that will require immediate veterinary attention. Your vet needs to place her on IV fluids to flush out her system since too many waste products are building up in her blood making her very sick. I wish I could help more but this is the best thing for your sweet Shelby.

Does that make sense to you?
