Thumbs down help fur baby ate garbage

I need some generic help here. Rosie ate 2 slices of pizza that were in the garbage. she just dug them out, now rosie wont eat her boiled rice and boiled hamberger or chicken or her puppy chow crunchits (i am trying slowly to wean her from all of the boiling) Rosie is becomming so pugheadded that she has started to vomit yellow bile, which is telling me that she is starving, but she continues to refuse any of her food she is interested in eating and everytime the microwave goes off she sits and waits for her food but will stick her nose in the air if it is something on her allowed list. I am wits end about this----the cause--pepperoni pizza. any suggestions??you cant boil pizza!!!!

LOL LOL LOL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Maybe buy a small bottle of pizza sauce (spaghetti sauce), and put just a tiny spoonful in each of her meals? Just enough to flavor it. Then slowly add less and less. I'm not sure if this is good advice, or whether it would just make her taste for Italian food stronger!
I don't even know what is in pepperoni. Is there pork in it? Maybe her tummy is upset. Gosh, she needs to eat (how's that for stating the obvious?).
She's been through so much, needs to keep her strength up.
Sorry you're having yet more trouble! Sorry for both of you, really!

Just out of curiousity, how old is Rosie? I'm not sure about your problem, but I wouldn't advise using the sauce because it could upset her tummy further. If she doesn't eat out of hunger, you can always liquidise her food and feed her it through a syringe. It may make her angry and could be a two-man job, but I'd do it to prevent my pup from starving! lol
Good luck XxX

When did she eat this pizza, and how big were the slices? A small dog wolfing down large pieces of hardened pizza that were probably loaded with bacteria could cause some distress, I would imagine?

I admit I had to smile at sweet little Rosie holding out for pizza. But I know she has serious health concerns and not eating is a big issue. I wish I had good advice for you.

Rosie is now 16 weeks old and she ate the pizza over a two hour time span...went back to school shopping...I put a little ketchup on her hamberger and rice rice and she gobbled it up then...tried plain first. Rosie must eat because she going for her surgery on Thurday. whod of thought that a couple of slices of pizza could make such a big deal out of things.

i guess she just like her food to taste good and not bland

is ketchup ok?? I put a few drops of ketchup on her boiled chicken today(after i tried it plain) and she gobbled it down

the pizza was still warm when she got it. I didn't want my son to eat it. so rosie had the opportunity to dig in the garbage and PIZZA yummy. the bacteria count should be low as it was fresh.

I put ketchup on her chow crunchits at lunch and all gone. I think the puglette likes ketchup

any reason why she souldn't have it?? any suggestions would be appreciated

If you put just a little on the first couple pieces, will she eat the rest plain? Maybe just "priming the pump" may perk her appetite and get her started eating?

Depending on the manufacturer, it could be beef or pork or any combination thereof.

????? on the peperoni ( never heard of goat peperoni before)--have no clue but no ill effects with Rosie other than not eating noticed. The ketchup seems to be working well and she really likes it. will wean her of it at a later date, but just fine for now (her vet would rather hear that she is eating her foood with ketchup, than not all -- right now
