My dog was vomiting a mucus around midnight roughly 2 hours

Customer Question

My dog was vomiting a white mucus around midnight roughly 2 hours ago. She threw up about 3 or 4 times and was acting strange licking the air. She has since calmed down and is laying down next to me. But she still seems to be a little restless and wakes up every 15-20 minutes and tries to stretch her neck it seems and then licks her paws. Then she relaxes for a little and seems to be repeating the process every so often. Any help or advice would be very appreciated because I'm not going to be able to sleep tonight until I know she is alright.

She is not whining or giving me any real signs that something is wrong now. But she seemed so off earlier that I'm worried.

Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you with your wee one today.

Can she keep water down?

Are her gums nice and pink (not white/pale)? Moist or sticky?

If you press on her belly, does she have any tensing, tenderness, discomfort, or pain?

Could she have eaten anything she should not have (ie bones, stones, socks, toys, plants, chemicals, human meds, etc)?

Any diarrhea?
