Good news that little Clementine is home.

That being said, it has only been two or three days since she was diagnosed so she is still a very sick little girl and it is going to take a while. I'm sorry I don't really have any advice to offer. I trust that the vet would not have said you could bring her home if he didn't feel confident that the worst danger was over. Her little tummy won't be able to handle much right now so it makes sense to me that he would initially prescribe small but frequent feedings of pedialite and chicken broth.

I know it is hard to see your little girl so sick. Of course if she is vomiting or shows any other negative signs you would contact your vet and he will decide if any other steps need to be taken. It is important not to overload her system but it is also very important that she doesn't get dehydrated.

Sending that she starts to feel better very soon. Please keep us updated.
