Pinar, bloody vomit and diarrhea can be caused by many different medical conditions. It will be difficult for me to determine the exact underlying cause without a hands on examination and some testing. But, common causes are: Toxicity, ingestion of a foreign body, infections or even part of a systemic disease, etc. to name a few causes.
In this case, if you have access to ER veterinarian I would strongly recommend having her checked tonight by ER vet for supportive care, blood work and xrays as initial screening test. If you do not have access to ER vet this is what you can do until she is seen by family veterinarian:
1- Do not give things like Pepto Bismol or imodium. Start her on Zantac (ranitidine) 75mg 1/2 tablet every 12 hours. You can buy Pepcid AC over the counter in any pharmacy (chemist).
2- No food or water for 6-8 hours. Need to give her gastrointestinal tract time to rest.
3- After 6-8 hours offer a small amount of water. Wait half hour, if no vomiting, offer small amount of rice (50%) and boiled boneless chicken or ground beef (50%) 4-6 times a day.
4- Follow up with in the morning with your family veterinarian for a hands on examination.
