Hi, Dr. W here. I'm sorry to hear this :(

The vomit is clear but there's quite a bit no ordor

Okay thank you. That is a lot of vomiting. Vomiting that continues for more than 12 hours should be seen by a vet so that Freyia doesn't get dehydrated and develop electrolyte abnormalities. Her vet may want to administer fluids and electrolytes and medications to stop the vomiting. In the mean time you can try a few things at home: wait until there is no vomiting for 4 hours then try offering Pedialyte for hydration and electrolyte balance and some canned pumpkin to help settle her stomach. You can also 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. After this I would feed boiled chicken and white rice for the next 24 hours. It is a bland diet that can help while the stomach is getting back to normal.
