In my opinion, I'd rather not feed a dog who has thrown up for a good 8-12 hours. Water yes, food, no.

I sure hope that your precious Baci is feeling better. Hugs to you. Keep us posted.

Kathy, I am so sorry Baci is sick. Snowball is on meds now for gastritis, so I know how you feel. It does seem though that Baci throwing up ten times in the same timeframe is a lot. I hope you get in touch with your vet right away. Maybe Baci just needs to be on a bland diet for a few days.

I can share that Snowball looked as though he wasn't going to eat his plain boiled chicken at first. He sat there with his puppy doggie eyes and looked at me like what seemed like forever ... of course, his hoping that I would give in and give him something else. But, I had to keep on telling myself that I loved him too much to give in ... and, he finally ate the whole 1/4 cup of plain boiled chicken in his bowl. Just a little while ago, we made him some more chicken and he showed no interest again. So, I put a little bit on the tips of my fingers ... and, he ended up eating the rest out of his bowl. I just wanted to share this because I would be surprised if a vet tells you to continue him on any kind of food until Baci's tummy is better and you can get a diagnosis what is happening to cause him to vomit so much.

If it were me, I would not wait until tomorrow for him to see a doctor. I would want to make sure that he doesn't become dehydrated.

My prayers and positive thoughts are with you. And, please keep us updated,

Please give Baci some gentle cuddles and hugs from me. Hugs for you, too. :tender:

Oh Kathy - I just read this. I'm so sorry. I'm assuming you're at the hospital right now with Baci. I hope he'll be okay. Please let us know how he's doing. I'll be home tomorrow afternoon in the city if you need me or anything.
