|Personally, I would try fasting.
In nature, when animals feels sick, they don't eat. They naturally fast themselves. Fasting helps the body cleanse itself and do a bit of detox. I would skip a day of food (at least one), only providing water or maybe some chicken broth.
I know it sounds "mean," but it's not. It's how a dog would heal themselves if they were feeling sick.
If you are uncomfortable with fasting, chicken and rice and/or pumpkin might help the symptoms, but I don't know if they'll address the underlying issues of a stomach that might have a flora imbalance. If you go the pumpkin or chicken and rice route, I highly advocate probiotics and digestive enzymes to help her belly through this.
I have tried the chicken/rice and the pumpkin before and they work well, but now I would try fasting first and if that didn't work, would go to the vet.
Hope you're feeling better soon!
