Hello, this is Dr. Schmidt. Thank you for using JustAnswer. Usually with dogs eating jerky they will get some GI upset (vomiting, diarrhea, not wanting to eat) over the next few days. I would recommend the following to help mitigate the situation. If this does not help, I would recommend taking her to the vet for a check up.

You can give Pepcid (0.25 mg/lb) every 12 hours for the next few days. It is an antacid that can help decrease the acidity in the stomach and help with GI upset. I would feed boiled chicken and white rice for the next few days. It is a bland diet that can help with GI upset. You can also syringe feed some Pedialyte to help with hydration as well.

If you have a moment to fill out a positive review (by clicking on the **stars** at the top of the page) for me I would greatly appreciate it. This is the only way the website can credit me for my time. Thank you so much and good luck!
