Q. Started throwing up last night then this morning he ate his food after running around he threw it up

Answered By

A. I would suggest to withhold food for the next 12 hours and then start feeding him with a bland diet based on boiled chicken and rice every 4-6hours for 48 hours at least. Keep him quiet and restrict the exercise for the next 24 hours.

If not any better or showing signs of lethargy, depression, inappetence, having diarrhea or more vomiting then I would suggest to take him to your veterinarian for a check up and have appropriate treatment prescribed.
