After 24 hours of only vomiting once or twice I give my dog bland chicken breast and white rice in a 50:50 ratio. I boil or steam her chicken. I'll give that to her for about 5 days then go back to her normal feed. This is what I've done, but I'm not sure if your vet might have a better recommendation. Along with any answers here, I would also ask your vet for any recommendations. They know your dog best.

Hope your dog feels better, Cookie.

Gerber strained chicken baby food is another possibility. When my animals will not touch anything at all this is my bridge no fail food. I always keep a few jars handy.

Wednesday she had normal poops but was still throwing up. She had been eating just fine but Wednesday wouldn't touch her food.  She seemed fairly lethargic. Took her to a vet last night.  Thankfully no pancreatitis. Got meds  She still not interested in food. Any ideas of what I can do to help her feel better. First time in 7 years she's been sick.

In the meantime. you'll have to device a way so that she doesn't get into the trash again. Dogs don't learn and are oblivious and she'll probably get into that trash again.

You might fix her some nice white rice with a little cottage cheese and see if she eats it. Maybe a few days of nice bland meals will get her back to normal. I have to feed my Basset like that daily with some cooked chicken because of pancreatitis. I also was told to give him a 10mg pill of Famotidine to help settle his stomach but it sounds like you already have some meds for that. Give the rice and cottage cheese a shot. Maybe that will attract her back to eating again.

As everyone has said, white rice and boiled chicken for a few days. My dog can't have grains so she gets boiled or most likely Steam in the bag potatoes from the frozen food section. I will also add low sodium broth to their water to see if that sparks their appetite.

Did the vet do any x-rays to rule out any blockage or foreign objects? I hope your pup gets back to normal soon!
