Unfortunately - I am very concerned with this degree of vomiting.

You can certainly try a bland diet such as boiled chicken and rice (2/3 rice and 1/3 chicken).

You can also consider giving 10mg of Pepcid A/C (famotidine) by mouth every 12 hours for 5 days for stomach upset. You can purchase this over the counter.

BUT - If the signs do not resolve - or worsen - then I would see your primary veterinarian or go to the local ER.

We really should make sure there is not a blockage with belly x-rays or other systemic causes for vomiting - considering not only belly x-rays but basic bloodwork to check cell counts and organ values as well can see secondary complications such as dehdyration from all the vomiting.

I hope this information helps!
