    Unhappy Foamy, Thick saliva vomit.....

    My dog a mixed black lab has begun to vomit a thick (egg white like), foamy substance that appears to get trapped in his esophogus. It is highly agitated when he drinks water. His food stays down for the most part but, he drools continually, especially when stimulated...ie food, play or petting. Mega-E was our vets diagnosis but we've discounted it since his food paases to his stomach when feed. The saliva is soo thick it causes a blockage in his esoph. CAN ANYONE HELP MY IN ADVISE. THX

    Keypoints
    1. Vomitting started after vet visit.
    2. Excessive drool after a Hartz Flee Product used. (He's been cleaned since)
    3. Gergitating the thick foam is evrytime he drinks water.
    4. Constantly swallowing his saliva.

    How is he doing otherwise? (tired, irritable ect)
    Did the vet do Xrays? If so what views? (belly, throat?)
    Does he chew rawhides?

    Vomit...

    He is fairly normal, has energy, loves attention, loves to play.

    No xrays yet, are on fixed income.

    No rawhides. It seems he would be okay if we could stop the drooling.

    How's the poo looking?

    Sounds like it could be a blockage, or maybe he got into something dog-toxic.

    Sorry more questions came to mind:
    What do you clean his bowls with?
    Is it tap water he drinks? Country vs city water?
    How long since the flea soap incident?
    How long has this been going on?

    Hmmm, that sounds like a case. Well, how was that spray applied, on his skin, near his face, did he lick any of it? How about getting his vaccines on that visit to the vet? Did he come into contact with other dogs or animals when he went to the vets and had to wait in the waiting room? Or what happens if you rub his throat lightly?

    Sorry, lots of questions
