Customer reply replied 2 months ago
YESTERDAY EVERY 2 HOURS MORE OR LESS. THIS AM NOT VOMITING BUT POOPING

Gastro-intestinal upsets such as this should be self limiting as long as she can maintain her hydration - if she is drinking plenty of water and keeping it down.

Giving oral ranitidine (zantac) as an antacid at a dose of 1mg/lb every 8 hours can help settle her stomach and encourage her appetite.

Offering a light diet such as chicken and rice, a little scrambled egg or plain white fish can help take the strain off her digestive system and help the diarrhea settle down.

If you are not seeing a significant improvement over the next 24 hours, especially if she is vomiting more and not keeping water down, I would recommend having your vet check her over ASAP as she could become quickly dehydrated.
