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 Penny, please?

Dogs can "houseclean" vomit - empty their stomach thoroughly when vomiting unlike cats. Penny's continuing to eat nondigestable greens indicates that gastrointestinal distress persisted but not necessarily that anything was left in her stomach. You mustn't induce more vomiting in such a patient. If she continues to vomit, she'll need the attention of her vet who can dose her with an injectable antiemetic. It's not possible for caretakers to care for persistently vomiting pets at home.
