My name is***** and I am sorry to hear that Bailey is sick. Is she still vomiting? Is she still having diarrhea? Is there blood in the diarrhea?
I would consider taking her to the animal emergency room this evening if you see the following things- continued vomiting even if you are withholding food and water, blood in diarrhea, or a distended abdomen.

If she is no longer vomiting, I would offer small (1/2 cup) amounts of water once every 30 minutes throughout the evening. In the morning I would feed her some bland food such as boiled rice and chicken.

Good luck to you and Bailey this evening.

Best regards, ***** ***** this answer helps you.
