Vomiting white foam

Oreo started to vomit white foam at 3am every half hour until around 7am.

He's still vomiting every so often and he skipped breakfast this morning which is understandable (he also has been skipping breakfast or reluctant to eat for the past few days now). He also hasn't been drinking any water.

The only thing I can see is that he ate something bad. He actually got into the garbage last night and was chomping on a shrimp head. I'm not sure if he was eating anything else.

I hope he's going to be ok...he has a vet appointment in a few hours.

I would definitely check this out with the vet. If you know he got into the garbage, he certainly could have ingested something that made him sick. The continued vomiting and refusal to drink water would concern me.

Lizzie vomits bile and white foam several mornings out of the week. Still take him to the vet, but from what I hear this is a small dog tummy thing. I do give her a couple of dog biscuits before bed to try and alleviate the empty tummy.

I think so too. I give Roshi a few small treats before bed. Well, more like a treat for going into a crate all by himself. Bedtime is one of his favorite times!!

At the vet now.

Vet took x-rays and Oreo has something stuck in his stomach.

We ruled out bone because we had no bones in the garbage but we think it might be king crab shell.

We have to bring him back tomorrow morning for another x-ray to see if it passes through his stomach. If it doesn't, they'll have to surgically remove it.

Edit: called the vet back to see if we could give it an extra day to see if he passes it...waiting for her to call back.

Poor Oreo, I'm glad you took him to the vet.

Hope that nasty crab passes through his stomach on it's own and Oreo is ok.
