I'm sorry that your question wasn't answered in a timely manner. Please let me know if you still need help. May I have an update on Scooby, please?

If Scooby can't retain water at this time your can replace his water with ice cubes for him to lick. If he continues to vomit in spite of your removing his water, his vet can rehydrate him with subcutanous or intravenous fluid administration. Desitin contains zinc oxide as its active ingredient. Zinc oxide is poorly absorbed by his gastrointestinal tract and so zinc toxicity isn't a concern but it might cause transient gastrointestinal disturbances as you're seeing.
