My dog threw up white foam. She has thrown up this white foam before so this isn't the first time, but it doesn't happen often.
I assume she sometimes swallows parts of her toys because she tears them to shreds. She always eats normally, the same amount each day and doesn't act as if she is sick.
Is this just normal behavior for a dog to sometimes throw up white foam or is there possibly a more serious issue that I should be concerned about, such as a pathogenic bacteria, worms, etc.? Is my dog trying to tell me something by throwing up?
Note: she has been doing this since I've had her (4 years old now) and she visited the vet in the past year for a check up with nothing wrong.
Update: I took my dog to the vet yesterday because I noticed blood in her poop (about 2 weeks after this post) and it turns out she had some type of stomach virus. It cost about $180 for the vet visit and medications, but they gave her some antibiotic shots and some pills that I have to give her. So for the record: blood in poop is bad.
