Alright, so I'm a little concerned about my child. Last night she kept licking her blanket and I realized that she had what look like foam around her mouth. I passed it off as gross and probably just from overlicking. This morning when I woke up I found her in one of our spare bedrooms and there was a couple foam spots on the carpet. I don't know if this is some type of throw up so I decided to see what I could find out about this and now (after doing some research) I am a little freaked out at all the possibilities.

She doesn't really have any other symptoms. She seems her normal self, there aren't really any stressors here except for cold weather (she's an inside dog), and her poop looks pretty normal so I don't think it's an upset stomach or anything like that.

I plan on calling the vet when they open but does anyone have any ideas what this could be?

So, I spoke to the vet and they don't seem too concerned unless it continues. I haven't really since it this morning except for the spots on the carpet but for all I know she could've done that in the middle of the night. She is now sleeping (which is pretty normal for her for this time of the day) and I haven't really seen any more so I'm just going to keep an eye on her since there are no other symptoms. Maybe she really just overly grooms herself?

Foamy yellow or white throw up (with no food in it) is usually caused by an empty stomach. Try feeding twice a day, with a treat in the middle of the day, if you are only currently feeding once a day.

We currently feed her twice a day. She has been cut back on food just because she was gaining weight and with her breed I was told that it not a good idea at all. Maybe I should up how much she is eating though...

Just give her a snack mid day.

You can also add canned green beans (low sodium) to replace half of her food, which will lower the calories consumed but make her feel full.
