The vomiting you've described, which is clear and slimy, suggests that your dog may be experiencing gastric irritation or inflammation. This could be due to dietary indiscretion, an infection, or a more chronic condition like gastritis, pancreatitis, or even a foreign body obstruction.

Given that she is also experiencing a loss of appetite and weight loss, it's possible that her condition is affecting her overall metabolism or causing her significant discomfort. The behavior change of seeking solitude can be a sign that she is not feeling well and prefers to be alone to rest. Watery eyes may be related or could be a separate issue, such as an eye infection or allergy.

I would recommend taking her to the hospital to determine her exact condition. Until then, it's important to ensure she stays hydrated. You can offer small amounts of water frequently but avoid forcing her to drink. If she can tolerate it, you might try offering a bland diet, such as boiled chicken and rice, in small quantities. However, if she continues to vomit, it's best to withhold food for a short period to allow her stomach to settle.

Monitor her closely for any additional symptoms or changes in her condition. If she exhibits any of the following, it would necessitate an immediate visit to the veterinarian:

- Signs of dehydration (dry gums, lethargy, sunken eyes)
- Blood in vomit or stool
- Difficulty breathing or changes in gum color (pale or blue-tinged)
- Seizures or loss of consciousness

Her symptoms are concerning, and it is best to seek veterinary care.
