    Default White Viscous Vomit

    Around 3:30pm Milo had a 5 minute period of vomitting white-clear viscous fluid 3 times. After this 5 minute though, there was nothing else, he just went back to sleep.

    At dinner time however, he only at the beef mince, ate only a little bit of the chicken back and did not touch the fish. He wasn't too enthusiastic with dinner too which was unusual.

    Before the vomit, about 1 hour before, he was on my lap in the car and had his face really close to the open window. He never does this in the car because he usually just sleeps. My dad thinks he got car sick.

    I Googled about white foamy vomits, and some said
    - kennel cough (he has not been to an environment lately which would make him susceptible to it)
    - empty stomach (he had a slice a toast in the morning)
    - bloating (doesn't have other symptoms to tie in)
    - rabies (I thought Australia is rabies free)

    Anyone else have any idea?

    Kaida had pretty much exactly the same thing about 2 months ago. Turned out to be bronchitous that she picked up from my sisters dog who got it from the vets. Apparently its doing the run around Perth atm.
    Her symptoms were:
    -Clear lumpy vomit (almost phelgmy in texture but clear if that makes sense)
    -Put off her food
    -lethagic
    -slight husk to her bark

    She was put on antibiotics and it went within 3 days. Hope this helps!

    Oh and it doesnt have to be from direct contact with another dog.. Could be like Milo stepped on bird poo which came from a bird which ate a butterfly which landed on dog poo which came from an infected dog.. etc etc (may be slight exaggoration!)

    Thanks! I'll monitor him for the weekend... and if it persists, I'll take him to the vet on Monday. Hopefully the bill won't be out of the roof!

    Are there any other unusual sign or symptoms? Did the dog vomit again?
