It worked and two hours later she vomited up the hairband and her lunch and some fluid. But that was followed by four more hours of vomiting up fluids and then blood colored fluids. We went to the ER. They gave meds to stop the vomiting and sub q fluids. But today she was very weak and lethargic so I took her to her regular vet. There they gave her an appetite stimulant and meds for her upset tummy and more sub q fluids.
She hasn't eaten yet but seems more rested than lethargic. I also gave her 3ccs of a mixture of 2 ccs of tuna juice with 2 drops of corn syrup mixed in approximately 1/8 cup or more of water which helped perk her up.
The next steps will be to try to get food in her. If she vomits again then she will return to the vet for a barium test to make sure there are no blockages in the stomach and intestines. If she becomes lethargic again, she will need more sub q fluids. She might need another appetite stimulant.
