Lexi's Sick

Lexi started barking this morning at 6AM. She wouldn't stop so I went out to her crate to take her out to go potty. I noticed her pillow in her crate covered in brown stuff. I got her out of the crate and she started to act like she had to go potty so I took her out. She went poop but it was really, really soft. Almost to soft to pick up. When we got back inside she throw up a brown liquid. I offered her some dog food (didn't have any hamburger or rice for the bland diet) and she wouldn't eat it. We went outside one more time before I went to work and again the poop was really, really soft.

I called the vet and they said to give her a bland diet (boiled hamburger and boiled rice) for 24 hrs. After that if she is better I can give her her dog food again. If she isn't better I'm supposed to bring her in.

She seems to be back to normal.  She ate supper (rice and chicken).  Her poop is almost back to normal, it is just slightly soft still.  She is playing with Nikki like normal.
