Our 8 month old Yorkie has been vomiting yellow foamie substance and has not been eating much since Thursday. Friday was bad and Saturday was the worst. She vomited 4 or 5 times and also dry heaved who knows how much, but, she acts her same very playful self . I got worried and took her to the Emergency Vet Saturday night. They ran every test: Blood, Parvo, Fecal, Complete Blood Count, and Vetscan Chemistry Profile. They also gave her fluids subcutaneously. All of the tests came back negative. She acted normal while at the clinic, except her stomach was squeaking and rumbling really loudly. She weighs 4.5 lbs, her temp. was 103*. They gave here some chicken and rice puppy food that is easier to digest, which she ate. They also gave her some Diarsanyl Oral Paste and Reglan Liquid. After we got home Sunday morning at 3:30am, she was fine and all day Sunday she was fine. Today, she started vomiting again and had loose stool she is also not eating as much. Her stomach has also started making the squeakiy sounds again. Any ideas? We already paid $350 at the emergency vet to find out there was nothing wrong, but, obviously something is. I would greatly appreciate the help, I 've read all the horror stories and I'm worried.
IF she were my dog, I would fast her for 12 hours. then bring her back on a diet of boiled, rinsed chicken or hmbg & rice. 1/3 meat to 2/3 rice. Keep her on that for at least two days. Four small meals a day. Then gradually add a small amt of her regular food. Some yogurt wouldn't hurt either
Does she have food available all the time? What kind of food are you feeding her? Did they mention food allergies?
boiled, rinsed chicken & rice is not the same thing as puppy chow! What is the brand they gave you at the ER?

It really sounds like she is not getting enough to eat. The noises & the bile sure indicate that. With all the vomiting you need to be watchful that she doesn't dehydrate.
