Hello. My name is***** and I am a veterinarian that can answer your question. I understand Roxy has been vomiting when drinking water and is not eating well. I am sorry to hear about what has been happening. Are you observing any diarrhea? How many days has this been happening?

There are some over-the-counter remedies to treat vomiting. Oftentimes, the lethargy after vomiting is attributed to dehydration, so fluid therapy performed by a veterinarian can be very helpful in her feeling better. Treatment for acute stomach upset is to give a medication to decrease nausea, resolve dehydration, and withhold food for the next 12 hours. When food is introduced again, make sure to do it slowly and with a low fat food option. Low fat foods consist of things like boiled chicken, white rice, and sweet potatoes. You will want to offer small amounts throughout the day.

You will also benefit by checking her hydration status periodically throughout the day. There are two ways to do that. The first is to feel the gums. They should feel wet and slippery. If they feel dry or sticky then that is a sign of dehydration. The other way to monitor is to perform the "skin tent" test, which is performed by gently pulling up on the skin behind the shoulders until you feel resistance. Let go of the skin and then count how long it takes for it to return to a normal position. A normal time is less than 2 seconds. If she is dehydrated, continues to vomit, or does not eat within 48 hours then she should be seen by a veterinarian for diagnostics.
