Dog won't eat pill: is not eating, vomits pill back up if she is forced to swallow it.

My dog is a 7 year old toy poodle who started violently throwing up and having diarrhea last night (about 17 hours ago). Her vomit is clear and has no food in it, but does have mucus and an opaque yellow substance in it. Her diarrhea has blood in it, but we know that the blood is coming from agitation in her rectum because of how much she has pooped. She also keeps trying to poop, but nothing comes out. We took her to the vet and she was given medication.
The problem is, she won't keep the pills down. She won't eat anything, so hiding it in treats and peanut butter aren't an option. We tried opening up her mouth and forcing her to swallow, but thirty seconds after she swallowed it, she puked it back up again. Not only was there vomit this time, now she won't stop producing saliva and it is just coming out of her mouth non stop.
There is spit everywhere, please help. Does anyone know how i can give my dog her pill and make her keep it down?

Try a pill gun, grinding up the pill, or see if the medication you were prescribed comes in a suppository form also. ^_^
