When did she start vomiting and how long has it been since she last ate?

Is there anything that yo an think of that may have triggered the vomiting? e.g. food change or any chance that she may have eaten anything else e.g. other foreign material, toxins, human food?

How old is your dog and has she had any previous medical issues?

Is she able to drink?

Up to date on all vaccines
No chance she's eaten anything bad only people food is chicken and rice and ordered by the vet
She is able to drink water and seems to want water but about 1-5 mins after water intake she vomits it back up
It's slimy and or white foam.
Her belly is rumbling so loud you can barely hear her heart.
I was sent home with shots for nausea and even that doesn't help

I absolutely understand how distressing this must be for you. I too am very concerned that she has lost a lot of weight and is vomiting so often.

I'm currently typing up my reply. This may take a few minutes. Thank you for your patience.

The fact that she is vomiting so much and cannot even keep water down is concerning. There are a number of problems that can cause dogs to vomit frequently despite treatment, these can include:

*pancreatitis

*obstructions - this either be due to a piece of foreign material (some foreign material will not show up on x-ray) or a physical obstruction due to a swelling of the intestinal tract (tumor) or abnormal function of the gastrointestinal tract e.g. a gastooesphageal hernia.

* gastritis

*hormonal problems - less likely but Addisons diesease and diabetes may be a possibility.

A lot of these problems may not be detected on the tests that have been run already. Ultimately the fact that she continues to vomit and loose weight (despite the fact you have already done some good tests and tried some treatments for her) means that Abby should be seen by a vet again to do some additional tests. In this situation I recommend that you take Abby to see an internal medicine specialist ASAP. I realize that a visit with a veterinary internal medicine specialist can seem a bit daunting but they are in the best position to use their advanced training to diagnose problems quickly. They are also able to tell you what tests they think will be most helpful so you can avoid spending money on less useful tests. Depending on what they notice on their physical exam it is likely that the specialist will suggest some of the following tests for Abby: pancreatic lipase test, electrolyte panel, abdominal x-rays and ultrasound, they may even suggest endoscopy to assess her esophagus and stomach.

Since Abby is vomiting so often and has lost weight (likely due to dehydration) I suggest that you consider contacting local hospitals tonight, it would be safest to have her hospitalized and on fluids through the night until the additional tests can be ran.

Please let me know if you have any follow up questions. I wish you and Abby the best of luck.
