6:00 am Everything fine, happy girl. Eats, poops, pees, takes good bye treat
3:00 pm Kind of not the happy girl I usually get when coming home, She vomitted some time during the day.
Out for our walk, a little retrieving, Poops and pees
4:30 pm She vomitted again, now seems fine
5:30 pm Give her food. She goes at it slow and lazy. Doesn't finish. Never happened before
6:30 pm All of her dinner that she ate comes back.
She is really subdued. Finding places away from me to lay down. Even in other rooms.

Planning on giving her boiled rice for breakfast if everything stays kind of status quo through the night.

Should I be doing something else? Does this warrant a trip to eVet?

Don't like my girl being sick.

Oh no, sorry to hear she is not herself. I don't know that I'd run right to the vet..I would wait the night and see how she goes..maybe she just has a little virus? Is there anyway she got into something today while she was alone? Hope she is back to normal soon!!!

My vets have always recommended fasting for 24 hours to give the stomach a chance to settle down. Make sure she's got plenty of fresh water on hand too.

I usually cook up some chicken breast & rice when they start eating again but don't give them their usual quantity all at once. You're better off giving her small amounts over about 4-6 hours. That reduces the chance of the vomiting recurring.

Obviously, if she seems distressed, I would get her to the vet but wait & see how she goes. Poor girl. I hope she's back to normal soon. :(

I would have her checked for a blockage. These are nothing to play with. It fits the symptoms.

Hard to figure her out. I think I was up every hour on the hour to check on her. Thought she slept through the night but this morning found out she had visited the DW's closet and left another puke present there. Bits of carrot that she ate over 24 hours before. This morning she was her normal self. Attacked the plain rice I gave her with her normal gusto. Pooped okay although soft, not much in there to push out.

I'll be taking off early today to make sure she is okay, or off to the vet.

Blockage was a concern, serious concern. But with the exhaust end still functioning I thought it was not likely. I thought the blockage indicators were vomitting and no poop. Help me (and anyone else reading the thread) out. What are indicators of a blockage?

DON'T give her any more food and only SMALL amounts of water. I made this mistake when Zena started puking last year and she ended up dehydrating. NO DINNER tonight except for chicken broth and then just small amounts. Wait until she has gone 24 hours with NO PUKING and then just small bits of rice with chicken broth. Trust me...$300 later I learned my lesson. When they are puking; DON'T feed!!
Good luck, keep us posted and hope she is better real soon.

I wish I could help. Hope she's doing better today. Coco yesterday vomited while we where at work. She also seemed sluggish, but did go for a walk,play, and eat OK last night and this morning. Do you think they could be getting some sort of cold associated with the changing of the seasons?

That's what I thought too, Ed. I hope she's feeling better. :)
