She suckered me into giving her a little too much poached

Any of the changes that you describe could have started the vomiting. The chicken, the antibiotics, or the change to the R/D. Since the antibiotic has been completed I would give Lillie 24-48 hours for the GI upset to resolve. If the vomiting persists she needs to see her veterinarian for treatment and evaluation.

Hope this helps, we try to answer your questions and concerns as best we can on this site without the benefit of a proper physical examination. Please appreciate that it is always advisable to seek local veterinary care if possible. Let me know if there is anything further I can help you with. Thanks so much, and kind regards!
