Q. My dachshund has Vomited 2 times a very large amount of what smells like fecal material, although she has been drinking and has a good cap. refill.?

A. I would recommend monitoring for now if she is still active, not lethargic or having any runny stool. This could be an acute stomach upset and what sounds like possible ingestion of something she shouldn't have put in her mouth.
You can try feeding her a bland diet of boiled plain chicken and rice or cottage cheese (about 1/2 her normal serving tonight and normal size for the next 2 feelings after that). You can also try giving her some Peidialyte (plain flavored) to help keep her hydrated.
If she continues to vomit anymore within the next 12 hrs then off to the vet she goes for a good exam and potentially further testing to look at other potential causes of her illness.
