A. If the pet that is vomiting is a normally healthy young dog/cat, but not a puppy, the vomiting is not too severe and he/she appears to be still bright you can starve her for a few hours. Then intruduce small amounts of water and a light diet of chicken and rice. However if you know that your dog has eaten something she shouldn't have or chewed a toy, had bones, or is lethargic, it' s best to have him checked over!
