She may eventually need to be scoped.

Stomach Ulcer

A stomach ulcer is one of the common reasons why a dog may appear to be in pain after eating.Ulcers occur for a number of reasons, but they generally come about as a result of improper balances of stomach acids and other issues in your pet's intestinal tract. An ulcer is a hole in the stomach lining. The acids from your pet's stomach can seep out of the hole and into the rest of his body, causing pain and other discomfort as well.

Gastritis is a condition in which your dog's stomach lining becomes inflamed. There are different causes of this condition, but the result is oftentimes that your pet shows signs of pain in general that may seem to heighten or intensify immediately after eating. Dogs with gastritis oftentimes are prone to vomiting after eating as well.
Irritable Bowel Syndrome

Irritable Bowel Syndrome (or IBS) in dogs is similar to the same condition in humans. it causes a feeling of bloating and fullness after eating that many people and dogs alike experience as pain. It also oftentimes leads to inconsistent stool, so dogs with IBS may seem to have excessive flatulence and frequent bouts of diarrhea as well.

You may want to get some raw Goat's Milk from a nearby health food store (NOT GNC) or a Whole foods. This has probiotics and enzymes in it. I would recommend you order some Sunday Sundae which is a Probiotic to put the "good bacteria" in her gut & Digestive Enzyme to help assimilate food. This is a whole food Human Grade supplement that has helped many on this blog.

Sunday Sundae (Digestive Enzyme & Pro-Biotic Combo: http://www.feedsentials.com/

Possibly grind the food in a blender with water or bone broth to make it mushy.

Make some home made bone broth for nourishment.

And small meals

Not a good time to start raw.
