she not always eat iin the morning when I give to her. Niw is getting warmer so maybe when she ate later the food wasn't fresh enough but this is just my guessing. Other option day before she found some old chicken bone when we was on the field i tryied to take it from her but she was faster and eat little bit.
The first time her poop was sparse was around 4pm yesterday, since then she has been very watery and smelly already 4 times and she was vomiting once in the morning.

Hello,
I'll be great full foe your help
I am sorry that Luna is having this problem. It appears that she Is suffering from a digestive disturbance caused by something she may have eaten. For now, follow these instructions:

Fast Luna for 12-24 hrs to allow the digestive tract to calm down and heal.

Give her Pepcid AC or Famotidine at 0.5 mg per pound every 8 hrs. This can be purchased over the counter at the human pharmacy.

Give only small amounts of water during the fast or ice cubes

After the fast, feed Luna rice and boiled chicken (2/1)

If the symptoms have  resolved, then wean her back onto regular food. If the they persist especially during the fast, take Luna to your vet for an exam and lab work to determine the cause for this. This is extremely important since this can cause dehydration or other more serious concerns such as an intestinal obstruction or infection that will require veterinary intervention.

Does that make sense to you?
