Q. My dog vomit twice today and we haven't even fed her yet. We don't know if it's cause she's adjusting to a new house or something is wrong w her

A. Stress from moving or too long between meals can certainly cause vomiting on an empty stomach. If the vomiting has only happened once, it may be best to remove regular food for a few hours and then offer a bland meal of boiled chicken and rice to settle any minor digestive upset. Feeding smaller meals more frequently may also help resolve tummy upset from an empty stomach. However, if the vomiting continues for more than a day or you see other signs of illness such as diarrhea, lethargy or loss of appetite, it may indicate something more serious is going on and should be looked at by a vet.
