Hi--while this could just be a stomach virus, she may have an actual bacterial intestinal infection. If this were just diarrhea, I'd suggest the BRAT diet--bananas, rice, applesauce, and toast--and plenty of fluids, but if she's having the bazooka effect--coming out both ends--she's going to get dehydrated very quickly. Unless she can hold down clear liquids she'll need to get to the emergency room for possible intravenous hydration
