Q. She was having diarea all last week now she is throwing up

A. Poor dog sounds like she is having severe gastroenteritis (inflamed stomach and intestines). And due to the time frame of this occurring it is not going to go away without medical treatment. I highly recommend you get her seen by a vet for bloodwork testing to try and find out the cause of this. My top differentials are pancreatitis, pyometra (infected uterus), and kidney disease as possible causes but this list is not by any means all inclusive.
