Hello and thank you for using this site to help you. How is she doing with food, can she hold that down?

How often is she vomiting? Each time she drinks?

Is it bile or water?

No problem with food,but after drinking water,she vomits clear water sometimes with clear goo.

thank you. There may be a bit of reflux so try to slow down the drinking by giving ice cubes or get a bowl that slows down the drinking. Also try giving some pepcid ac and I will direct you to dosing for this. If it continues you will want to get a hands on exam. http://www.petplace.com/article/drug-library/library/over-the-counter/famotidine-pepcid

also try to break up meals into smaller meals through the day to help wit acid.
