Sick dog. To feed or not to feed.

My dog has vomited 4 times today and had diarrhea throughout the house. It's sunday so the vets aren't open but im going to call in the morning. So my question is, should i feed her again today or not? Normal feeding is at 8am and 6pm. She threw up about 30mins after this mornings and then again about 2 hours later and again about 2 more hours later. And then she also did through the night. So anyways should i feed her the 2nd time? Also is there anything i can give her to maybe help her feel better in the mean time till i get ahold if the vet tomorrow?

Which dog is sick? The puppy or your older dog?

I'd withhold food till she's not vomited for a minimum of 12 hours, 24 is better. I'd leave water down so long as she's not vomiting after drinking, if she is then withhold the water for a few hours.

She seems to be drinking just fine. She hasn't vomited for about 4.5 hours now

Whenever my pup had tummy troubles my vet would recommend feeding him boiled chicken breast and rice. If your dog hasn't been throwing up in a little while, you could try that!

You might try feeding her something bland, like a little rice. See how she does with that, then gradually a little at a time, introduce more into her diet. Give her tummy a chance to settle down, from whatever upset her.

If your dog has diarrhea and is vomiting, I would withhold food but not water. He is losing a lot of fluid through the diarrhea and vomit, so don't want to cause dehydration by withholding water.
