14 yr old Lab feeling sick


I have a 14 year old black lab named Magic (who is most assuredly the awesome). Anyway, she's had arthritis and the vet told me to give her childrens advil liquid to help ease the pain. Medical background complete. That's the only thing she's on.

Flash forward to the last few days. She has been vomitting and having diarrhea and is mildly lethargic. She is eating her food, but most of it is coming back out. Her jaw also seems to be clicking when she eats with her head tilted down though that may be unrelated.

I have switched her from her regular food to a rice and beef mixture that the vet has told me to give her before when she is feeling sick (2 parts rice to one part lean ground beef cooked). She seems to have a bit more energy that yesterday, but I'm still worried. This has been going on a few days. I personally can literally not afford a vet, as in if I took her to one I would not be able to pay for it. I recently had a death in the family and it took all my savings to travel and take time off for it. So any advice would be greatly GREATLY appreciated.
