Could a warm bath make a dog sick?
I didn't think that the water was any warmer than usual but I considered it lukewarm and she was in the bath for a longer period of time than usual as I hadn't given her a bath in a while.
Anyway, after she dried off, I took her outside for five to ten minutes (note it was 4PM here and 85 degrees). she seemed fine and was moving at a normal pace. however, when we got home, she vomited about five or six times (slipping on the wood floor once when doing so) and won't drink more than a sip or two of water.
she seems to be doing okay right now and perks up when she hears my voice (hearing is good), is walking fine, and follows my finger well (sight is fine). anyway, she didn't seem to have any of the main symptoms of heatstroke but she seems really lethargic and i'm just making sure that i don't need to take her in to the vet. thanks if anyone has any advice!
edit: she hasn't ate anything besides kibble the last two days (to my knowledge).

Since she hasn't eaten, I'd try to give her some nutri stat so she won't get hypoglycemic.

Don't let her get dehydrated, make sure she drinks water, if not get her to a vet before she gets too weak.
