I'm sorry that your question wasn't answered in a timely manner. Please let me know if you still need help. If your Pom has been anorexic, vomiting, and somnolent (sleepy) for a week, it's important that your vet attend to him/her at your earliest convenience. Your dog would have become profoundly dehydrated and electrolyte imbalanced by this time and require supplemental fluids and electrolytes once blood and urine were obtained for testing. Your dog's symptoms are important but they're not pathognomonic (specifically indicative) of any one particular disorder.

Please respond with further questions or concerns if you wish but I'd rather you were on your way to your vet.
