Q. Our dog started vomiting yesterday. Took her to vet. They xrayed and examined her plus gave her fluids for dehydration. Still not eating.

A. Sounds like your pet has some serious internal condition going on . X-rays are to look for things like a foreign body or an overly enlarged organ. However I would recommend asking your vet for bloodwork at this point to see if there is any organ malfunction going on that would be undetected with and x-ray. This is the next best step towards finding out what is happening with your pet. And a follow up visit is needed to look for other medical treatments to get your pet feeling better.
I am also available for a consult if you would like to give more details and discuss further.
