Hi. My name is***** I'm sorry to hear about this situation with your girl. Despite the bringing up of the foam, is she bringing up any food? Is she still eating well? Is she acting down and depressed?

Ok. One of the things I start to question about is if this white material / foam that is being brought up is actually being coughed up. If she is truly vomiting, it would seem that she'd bring up some of the chicken that she's eating. So if she's eating chicken and this isn't being brought up with the white foam, then I'd be curious that she could have trachea irritation that is causing a lot of coughing. One of the most common things that causes tracheal irritation for a young dog is kennel cough.
