A. If it has just been one or two episodes of vomiting then you can try starving for 12 hours and then gradually reintroduce a bland diet such as chicken and rice, you can also try a pro biotic paste from your pet store or vet, stop giving this as soon as faeces become slightly formed again as it can go the other way and cause constipation. If the vomiting continues then you need to see your vet. If the vomiting and diarrhea has been more than once or twice then you should see your vet as soon as possible as I would start to be concerned about dehydration. Your dog may need to stay in hospital on intravenous fluids if this is the case
