  • Give him/her some water, make sure she's hydrated. Don't feed her anything tomorrow, just give him/her plenty of fluids. Try pedialyte: mix 1 part pedialyte to 4 parts water.

  • How many times has she vomtied? it may be time to visit the vet. I would not feed her anything today and try to makes sure she is drinking water and keeping that down also. She may already be dehydrated and need fluids.

  • If the vomit was white and foamy-ish, that's a signal for worms... try deworming her and see if that stops it.

    Fair warning though, all my animals slobber and puke when I use the worm meds.

  • Yes, I agree with taking her to the vet if she has vomitted multiple times. After fasting her for 24 hours (make sure she is getting plenty to drink), try feeding her a bland diet of boiled chicken or beef and rice for a couple of days then SLOWLY introduce her back to her regular food over a few days.
