Day 1 my puppy threw up a piece of bone she ate, we know she threw up the whole piece, we checked.Very sick & lethargic

After she threw up the bone, she continued to have diarrhea & vomit until there was nothing left. Whenever she drank water, she would vomit the water within 20 minutes. Before she threw up this bone she ate, she had gotten her vaccinations only 2 days prior. She had ticks & fleas when I found her, which were all removed after. Vet is unsure if she may be sick due to some illness she had gotten from a tick or from scarring the bone has caused internally or perhaps cause she was vaccinated too late. Vet gave her treatment against ticks incase, which caused her to have bloody diarrhea, so vet gave her treatment for diarrhea & it stopped. She has continued to vomit clear liquid, has vomited light-colored blood once. Vet gave her some treatment for vomiting & she didnt vomit anymore until late at night where she vomited clear liquid again. Today for first time she vomited foam. She has been living on IV fluid for 6 days, plus vitamin C & B that vet gave. Anyone have suggestions/advice?

Our last dog, a border collie couldn't eat real bones. He would always have a problem with them. I know they like the real thing but we started giving just the milk bones instead.

I agree with the other answer you should have the dog x-rayed.

I would have an X-Ray done to see if any of the bone is stuck in her intestinal tract. That can be deadly. Good Luck! Hope she feels better.

YES x ray done. It also depends on the type of real bones you give your dog.No bird bones.Chicken,turkey,duck,pheasant,etc. If you havent given the dog those type but he still likes the taste of the real thing you can get bones that he can chew that are safe for him that have the flavor infused into the bone.
