Thanks for the information, Michelle. Vomiting 6 times, especially after eating, is concerning in and of itself; but I am really concerned about the fact that she is having problems walking. That usually indicates some type of systemic problem (something that would affect the entire body). Infection and toxins are a primary concern, but it could be related to some type of internal organ problem, such as liver, kidneys, pancreas, adrenal glands, etc. Either toxin buildup from liver or kidney problems or an organ inflammatory response, causing shock like symptoms, are all possible. A foreign body obstruction, a twisted intestinal tract or even a perforated intestinal tract are possible as well. Either way, that weakness is not a good sign. I highly recommend at this point to get her to your nearest veterinary emergency clinic to get some bloodwork drawn and started on fluid therapy to help reverse this process. Please let me know if you have any other questions or concerns. Hope this helps.
