She has been vomiting orange reddish chunks the passed 2 days. She’s vomited more than ten times

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. Hopefully it didn't make a mess. Did the dog eat anything unusual?

Not sure. She was ok whenwe left the house yesterday and when we came back she was vomiting

Veterinarian's Assistant: What is the dog's name?

Beauty

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Beauty?

Other than this she’s a healthy dog for the most part. She doesn’t eat much and doesn’t eat often thoigh

I can make a few recommendations of things you can try at home to help with vomiting. If these don't work, I would strongly urge you to take her to the vet for an xray in the morning.

You can give Pepcid (0.25 mg/lb) every 12 hours for the next few days. It is an antacid that can help decrease the acidity in the stomach and help with vomiting. I would feed her boiled chicken and white rice for the next few days. It is a bland diet that can help when they are having GI upset. You can also syringe feed her some Pedialyte to help with her hydration. You can also give her some canned food or chicken baby food to help spark her appetite if the chicken and rice isn't to his liking. Let me know if you have any other questions.

If you have a moment to fill out a positive review (by clicking on the **stars** at the top of the page) for me I would greatly appreciate it. This is the only way the website can credit me for my time. Thank you so much and good luck!
