Why is my dog vomiting white foam?

asked 2017-03-04 21:14:13 -0600

My dog just threw up and it looked white and foamy! What does this mean? I'm really worried he's eaten something awful or is very ill. What do I do??

My lab mix will drink tons of water very, very quickly and then cough up white foam. I have had to parse out water in small doses so he doesn't make himself sick by drinking too much too fast. Recommend watching his behavior and seeing if anything is different or drinking too fast. If it continues, and no noticeable behavioral changes, then recommend checking with the vet.

Has he been coughing or hacking at all? If he has then it could be Kennel Cough, sometimes dogs will cough so much they start to gag and the vomit can be white and foamy. Otherwise I would just do a google search and probably go see your vet soon if you can't find anything helpful on google!
