Dachshunds Digestive System

My baby just turned 8 and I have noticed in the past year she has had stomach problems.  Mostly my doing b/c I also gave her people food but that has stopped.  Lately she will throw up yellow stuff.  I feel for her.  She is happy does not seem the throwing up bothers her.  Up until she turned 7 I fed her Kibbles and Bites.  I had no clue that was crappy food.  I then switched her to Natural Nutro Lamb and Rice for sensitive stomachs.  She loves the food but then I noticed she started throwing up again.  Her vet switched her to Royal Canin prescription only last week.  She is still throwing up.  We also had blood work done and all looked good.  The next step the vet said was sonogram.  Is that necessary?  Her blood work came back fine.
Should I switch her back to Natural Nutro sice she is still throwing up with this new stuff.  She really did like that food.  I just do not want something to be wrong with her kidneys or liver.

If all the blood work looked good it means that the liver and kidney functions should be normal since the liver and kidney functions are usually checked when routine blood work is performed.

Have X-Rays been performed?  These are usually done prior to having an ultrasound done.  An ultrasound is not invasive and could give you some good information, however, it can be costly.

Have you tried giving her pepcid or zantac when she first gets up?  Some dogs just have acid reflux as some people do, so pepcid or zantac would lower the acid and stop the relfux.   If she has inflammatory bowel disease a low residue diet would be a good choice.  This is a prescription food, that your veterinarian should have.
