Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you today.

Is the vomit brown like her food or like coffee grounds?

Can she keep water down?

Are her gums pink or white/pale? Moist or sticky?

If you press on her belly, any tensing, tenderness, discomfort, or pain?

Could she have eaten anything harmful (ie bones, toys, plants, chemicals, human meds, etc)?

Any diarrhea?
