1st off my female boxer has a sensitive stomach, 6 years old, and is in a healthy weight and eats Canidae Dry dog food.  Today early this morning she puked up clear fluid and look to be a small amount of blood in it.  About 30 minutes later, she refused to eat, so I offered her some yorgurt with a smaller meal than normal.  She ate that  About 90 minutes later she puked that.  When I got home later she refused to eat again and pondering on what to do.  I know if I don't feed she will puke.  She can't ever have an empty stomach (that sensitive stomach thing) or she will puke.  What can I do, thank you for your help...

Welcome to the forum, sorry your girl isn't feeling well. Has she been able to move her bowels??? Did she eat something she shouldn't have??? With her sensitive stomach you could try a small amount of boiled chicken and rice, easy on the stomach. If that doesn't stay down, I'd call the vet. Good luck, oh yes, when she's feeling better we LOVE pics!!

I would go with Donners mom on this one..feed her the chicken and rice and if she still cant hold anything down or has not gone to the bathroom then id take her in to the vet.

I would let her stomach rest and then I would just give chicken broth to her in small amounts and graduate to the chicken and rice.  She probably had a little blood in her vomit from vomiting too much or too hard.  If she continues to vomit I would get her looked at tomorrow or tonight if it is really severe.

Thank you for the quick responses.  I went ahead and feed her some dry food mixed with rice and a small amount of yogurt.  The only problem I have is she sometimes get some crazy idea that she can eat a shelled pecan, I think she learned it from my dumb pug.  I have quite a few pecan trees in my yard so finding pecans is not too troublesome for them.  The only thing I can think is she might of got into some residual fire ant killer that was spread on yard via the pecans?

Everything seems to be fine, I was just worried that she actually refused to eat.  That was a 1st.  Thanks for the prompt responses.

She is doing fine now, I didn't witness the blood, but my wife was worried when she discovered it.  For the longest time should would have routine episodes of throwing up in the middle of the night, or if she was not feed on schedule.  We found that it was the cheap Purina dry dog food constantly upset her.  After switching to to Solid Gold, then to Innova, we finally settled for Canidae for the time being.  The Solid Gold was great and cured the night sickness, but they did that carry it when I moved.  Then the Innova also worked, but the stinky farts and high price of it was too much, plus the worry of the protein content.  Now we are with the Canidae, but still have friends telling me that is no good?  
That is just a little background on my baby, any suggestions is appreciated.

we went through the stomach stuff on nutro and natural balance...we are on chicken soup senior now for the past year and its wonderful !!!! no more stoamch issues wayyyyyy less gas..

you can add a tablespoon per day of plain nonfat yogurt to her food..works wonders on the gas

also went through the night throwing up sometimes and found that if she had a snack late night (just a small something) it took that right away

After Duke started not feeling well AGAIN last month, while on Royal Canin (we think it's too rich for him because of its 20% fat content), we're now very slowly changing him over to Purina Pro Plan Selects Salmon and Brown Rice.  So far, so good!  He still loves the Royal Canin, picking it out first from the mix, but unfortunately, it doesn't seem to like him!
