I am sorry to hear Lexi is having this problem.

It sounds like Lexi is having something called Hemorrhagic gastroenteritis or HGE. This type of vomiting and diarrhea can be very dehydrating and is typically a situation where the dog needs to be hospitalized and placed on intravenous fluids for at least 24-48 hours as well as started on prescription medications to stop diarrhea and vomiting. Assuming Lexi is appropriately vaccinated, it is unlikely something like parvovirus. The other think it could potentially be is pancreatitis (inflammation of the pancreas), which is seen often in Yorkies and yorkie mixes as well. This is also a situation where typically you are talking about a couple days in the hospital. Regardless, it would be a really good idea to have Lexi seen at some point today (ideally this morning) to have a good exam and have bloodwork checked to look for pancreatitis and HGE. Typically dogs will respond well to treatment, however it can be a couple days. I would not expect any over the counter medication or diet alteration to fix this problem and I would not hesitate to take her to the vet, especially due to her small size and young age.
