Vomiting and Diarrhoea can be caused by a variety of things:

If your pet has eaten a toy / sock or any other foreign body or ingested chocolate or other poison they should always see a vet

If the pet is vomiting blood or looks otherwise ill, or is elderly / weak, or the vomiting has persisted for more than 24 hours, or if you are worried then you should always see a vet.
