Hello,

That foam may be vomit. Often the most debilitating condition for puppies is dehydration. Keep her hydrated. Continue to offer small amounts of water with the syringe. As long as she keeps drinking, then you will be counteracting dehydration. This is the most important thing you can do until you can get her in to see the vet.

Also, make sure that she is warm and dry as well.

 

Good luck and I hope this helps.

Dr. Bruce
