I’m definitely not a vet, but I would suggest calling one first thing tomorrow and speaking to them about it.

I understand not having the money but that’s just part of being a pet owner.

Keep an eye on him, make sure it doesn’t look like his stomach is bloated or feeling hard that can be a sign of dog bloat which can kill a dog very quickly. Usually with this though they gag more than actually throw up.

Good luck, hopefully he just ate something he shouldn’t have but definitely keep an eye on him! : ) 

You can also try giving them plain white rice or canned pumpkin to settle their stomach.

I’m not a doggie vet BUT my dog has a sensitive stomach (ALLLL kinds of allergies, she’s on a special & very expensive dog food) so I’ve been down the upset tummy road wayyyy too many times.  We have spent more than enough time & money in the doggie ED.
Anyways, Is she still vomiting?  I wouldn’t worry unless it was a constant thing throughout the night. She probably just ate something that wasn’t pleasing to her tummy.
Feed her a bland diet for the next couple of days (chicken & rice is my pups favorite) and slowly introduce her regular dog food to her. Make sure she gets water too at some point tonight. I have a baby medicine syringe which is a good way to get water into her.

What kind of dog is she?

Cheese shouldn’t hurt here, but maybe she just has a sensitive stomach.

I never realized how many foods dogs shouldn’t have. I always knew chocolate, but didn’t know until it was too late that they can’t have garlic or onions. I fed our dog part of a burger with both in it and she puked about 8 times. : /

They also can’t have grapes. Such random things!

Whatever you do, don’t let her become dehydrated. That’s one of the most urgent threats in cases of repeated vomiting. Good luck!

If you dog ONLY ever gets kibble, when it eats other foods this will probably happen. It’s good to feed your pet a variety of foods, it keeps their digestive systems healthy and prevents this from happening again. When all they get is kibble, their stomach goes into “auto mode”, and anything out of the ordinary (cheese, or if they get into the trash) makes them sick. Slowly start giving your pet a variety of food with their meals, my dog gets milk with his morning kibble and a vegetable mixed in with his dinner, if we have extra meat from our dinner he gets some of that too. Sweet potatoes are really good for dogs, and it’s easy to bake a few every week and keep em in the fridge for fido.

Is she also having diarhea?  Make sure she is drinking water…..what type of food is she on?  Has she been on this type for a long time? what breed is she?  How big is she?

Cheese isn’t normally an issue with dogs….unless she is lactose intolerant (I’ve heard of that before)…..

I would keep an eye on her overnight and call the vet if it does not stop…

My dog has a sensitive stomach and sometimes she’ll suddenly have stomach discomfort (although she has only vomitted a handful of times in 4 years), and sometimes it passes on it’s own….

I would not feed your dog today…and try a diet of rice and boiled chicken tomorrow….you can add yams if your dog can stomach it….

btw not a vet….just have a dog with food sensitivities as well…..she is now on the raw diet and we have a lot less problems…

Just make sure he gets plenty of water. I think if it continues through the night, to definitely call the vet tomorrow morning. Feed bland foods – boiled chicken and rice, and some canned pumpkin. He should be fine. 

When you say cheese sticks.. do you mean mozerella sticks? Those are deep fried and VERY greasy – definitely would cause some tummy issues if your pup is used to a kibble diet. 

I know its hard right now with the economy, but please start saving into a “pet emergency fund” in case you need emergency visits like this (or worse) in the future. If your baby is sick, then he needs to go see the vet, bills and all!

Just saw your update…I’m glad she’s feeling better…

I do agree with a varied diet….and I’m not a fan of dog food anyways….my dog can’t eat it, and is much healthier on raw….no dog breath, white teeth, healthy fur…..

I still suggest trying some rice and boiled chicken tomorrow instead of kibble to help your dog’s stomach settle….since she’s so tiny a cheese stick (I was thinking like string cheese not deep fried cheese stick….wtf?  who feeds that to a dog?)

I personally would not be letting your mother take care of your dog anymore….I had to threaten my mother when she kept feeding my dog stuff….I could tell she was because she would have HUGE poops and tonnes of them for a couple days after visiting her…..with my dog’s stomach issues we could not keep paying for vet visits because my mother wanted to buy her love with food….

Ok, I was thinking like just a chunk of cheese. A fried cheese stick with such a little girl probably did upset her tummy.

Agree with the others, keep an eye on her and make sure she doesn’t get dehydrated. If she’s still throwing up in the morning, please call the vet. They may be able to just give you some tips over the phone without bringing her in.
