Hi there. My name is ***** ***** I'm happy to help you with your question. Just like an in person consult, I have a few questions of my own to ensure I give you the best advice possible...Other than the vomiting, how is he acting?Is the panting any better than when you first posted your question?Has he ever gone to daycare before?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Yes he has gone to daycare. He is very tired but drooling.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Panting is better but breathing heavy.
Expert:  Lisa replied 2 years ago.
Has he been eating/drinking normally today?Is his belly hard to the touch, or soft?Do you know if they gave him any new food or treats?Has he urinated or defecated since you got him home?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
He has urinated. Belly was soft.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Not sure if they gave him new food. I dropped him off around 12pm and I had fed him. Not sure.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
I do not think they fed him anything. He chewed on a frozen bone with some marrow in it. Bought it at a high end pet stor.

Thanks for the additional information. I really appreciate it.In the absence of any "real" symptoms (such as vomiting, diarrhea, problems urinating, defecating or anything else), I suspect we can just chalk this up to a big day at daycare for him.Some dogs will play really, really hard when they're at daycare, and then come home with some digestive upset and extreme lethargy. Add to that the panting that has resolved, and I feel like a good night's sleep will get him back to his old self.That being said...I'd still keep an eye on him for tonight and see how he does. If he shows any new symptoms, or if he just doesn't seem quite like himself in the morning, then you should give your vet a call and have them take a peek at him, just to be on the safe side.I hope this helps.

He vomited white foam and undigested dog food.
Expert:  Lisa replied 2 years ago.
That would be the digestive upset that I mentioned.It's actually pretty common for them to vomit after eating when they're so worn out. As long as he's not still vomiting, I'd just keep an eye on it.
