Are you sure the food is the problem? Has she started any new meds? Anything else change? Maybe it isn't the food. I wouldn't jump to conclusions.

just an observation ...carafate must be given one hour before food/meds or 2 hours after food/meds as it will bind to the proteins in the food/meds rather than to the protein that covers the irritated GI tract, which is what you want to happen...also the cerenia is a very good anti-nausea med, they can show you how to give it by injection ...nausea and vomiting causes lots of GI distress and then that multiplies as the dog continues to have symptoms...the injectable cerenia would help to settle her tummy fairly quickly...its just a subq injection ( like insulin )...very easy to give between the shoulders...
Hope you hit on whats upsetting her GI tract and she gets feeling better soon....

Yes but they have took all the medicines away from her too, and shes still throwing up. So now they are trying her without the food , said they would put her something different if need too but waiting on the blood Work first.

My husband thinks he may figured have figured it out!!!!!
when Missy was a baby we tried her on fish oil capsules,the human kind from walmart,(squirting a little on her food)after a while,she started throwing up,so we stopped.When her skin got so bad,we said we'd try her on salmon oil from petsmart,one squirt daily on her food(by this time she was years older) anyway,after about 10 weeks,the throwing up started back.(but by this time she was on different medicines,so medicines started being eliminated,the salmon oil was brought up but not eliminated)He thought of it through the night last night.She may have a allergy.So we are going to try her a few days without ANY oil.I just wonder how long she will have to go before its out of her system,and why did it take so long to make her start throwing up,IF it is the salmon oil.This would be so good if this is the problem,simply no at all.

and Lisa she hasn't threw up any more,but all she got was ice chips.We fed her this morning,her blue buffalo wilderness,no oil,just her food.I am watching her very close.Other than the throwing up,she acts healthy,plays,runs,eats perfect,poops fine,just seems fine.Now when she throws up,IT MAY BE THE SIZE OF A QUARTER,OR TANGERINE,the other night was a little more,but my husband had been playing with her and she had been running around.

That's great!! I just found out that Midgie is allergic to grouper & salmon, so I'm avoiding all fish! Sometimes, less is more if you know what I mean. Definitely sounds like you're on the right track. Just keep feeding itty bitty meals several times a day. The skin problem can be helped after she's better. There's so many other natural things you can do for her skin later like rubbing coconut oil on her fur & skin & using a good moisturizing shampoo. But I wouldn't worry about her skin right now. I was doing too much with Midgie. Too much at the same time which caused all kinds of caous & upset. We can't forget that their little bodies & systems can't take all this change at once. We have to just work on one problem at a time.
I'm am so happy you are seeing progress with this baby!! You know what's best for her, more than the professionals!! Way to go!
