Usually when a dog eats grass (and then gets sick) that helps get whatever was wrong out of the system. You could try giving your Jack a bland diet for the next few days - rice, shredding chicken, banana baby food. You could also consult with your vet to see if giving her pepto bismal or crushed pepcid would be ok (as some vets may not want this, FYI- using either will darken stool, but that is not a cause of concern)or pedia lite in her water. Make sure your Jack gets plenty of water because getting sick can deplete hydration, using a syringe if necessary. If things don't improve in the next day or so or your dog is refusing food/water after that time period, it may be time to take her to the vet.
