Is Chewy still vomiting?
Did your vet offer any sort of testing on Chewy? Bloodwork? Xrays?
Is Chewy still with the vet or did they send him home with you? Is he being given any medications?

Thank you for the reply.
When some dogs vomit a lot, they can get weak, especially if they become dehydrated. I am not surprised that he is tired now. It would be a good idea to give his GI system a rest. Since he is an adult dog, a 12-24 hr fast will not hurt him and will let his gut calm down. Continue to offer small amounts of water at a time. When you do begin feeding him again, you will want to offer frequent, small meals of something very digestible for him. These would include items like boiled hamburger or chicken and rice or pasta. No sauces or gravies, but a little non greasy broth would be OK. If he continues not to vomit, I would continue that for a few days and then slowly wean him back onto his normal food and feeding schedule. If the vomiting returns or he is otherwise not acting himself, I would have your vet re-evaluate him and consider further testing.
I hope this is helpful. Please let me know if you have ANY other questions. My goal is to give you 100% satisfaction and if you are not yet satisfied, please reply so I can clarify for you.
Yes, a virus can certainly be a cause of vomiting. And yes, air biting or snapping can be a form of seizure behavior. Many dogs that go through a grand mal type seizure will urinate and defecate, but vomiting is not commonly part of the presentation.

You are welcome. Please keep me posted as to how things progress for him.
Head trauma can cause seizures, but not vomiting usually. I would keep a log (date, length of seizure, actions, etc) of any seizure activity so that if it occurs again and you see it, you will have something to reference.
