I'm sorry Shadow isn't doing well! It sounds like he has an upset stomach.
You could try giving Shadow some Pepcid (Generic name is Famotidine) to help settle his stomach. Pepcid is a human antacid type medication you can get over-the-counter at any drug or grocery store. You can give 2.5 mg of Pepcid per 10 pounds of body weight twice daily, so for example, if your dog weighs 20 pounds, you would give 1/2 tablet of a 10 mg Pepcid twice daily.
Several hours after his first dose of Pepcid, make him a 50/50 mix of cooked white rice and boiled skinless white chicken with all the fats and juices drained off. Feed small amounts every few hours initially, and if no vomiting then you can gradually increase the amount fed and the length of time between feedings.
If no vomiting for 24-48 hours then you can gradually start mixing his regular food in with the chicken and rice, and then gradually wean him back off the rice mix. Once Shadow is eating his regular food you can discontinue the Pepcid.
I'm sorry I missed you! If Shadow still won't eat, if the vomiting persists, or if he becomes extremely lethargic, then you need to bring him into a local vet for an exam, assessment, and appropriate treatment, but hopefully Shadow will be feeling better soon!
Sorry I could not respond sooner. Yes, I'd stay with the chicken and rice for at least 24 hours because his digestive system is probably still tender and irritated. If no further vomiting then start gradually transitioning him back to his regular food. I'm so glad to hear Shadow is doing better for you!
You're very welcome, and I hope Shadow continues to do well for you - I think he's going to be just fine!
