Default Constant throwing up - thick, foamy, mucus?

Diego is sick right now ... bringing up this light colored thick, foamy mucus type stuff. He has done it 7 or 8 times in the past hour. Not a lot each time, but I am at a loss as to what to do. I have never been a puppy momma before. He is about 20 weeks old...

Edit: he has thrown up another 3 times since writing this post - it is very thick, sometimes it just hangs out of his mouth ... poor baby.

He must have gotten into something. They do this every once and a while, throw up without us knowing why. It should be ok, just keep an eye on him. I don't what time it is where you live, but he should be fine until morning. If he can't eat or drink in the morning without throwing up, maybe a trip to the vet would be in order.

Thank you for your replies. He stopped throwing up right after my "edit." We stayed up awhile longer to make sure and then went to bed around 3:15AM. He slept the rest of the night and hubby took him outside at 8:00AM and he urinated and then slept another hour. He hasn't gone near the food dish, yet, but I'm keeping an eye on him.

Thank you so much,

Sandra

If he is not eating I would take him on to the vet. When was the last time he ate? The foamy, yellow stuff he is throwing up means he has an empty stomach. Is he drinking water? If not, do you have any plain, Pedialyte to keep his electrolytes up?

I don't have any Pedialyte .... he drank just a little bit of water earlier this morning and has since eaten a couple of pieces of dog food. He chewed on a bone for a little bit and has urinated once. He tried defecating but that was also kind of mucus and strange. Right now he is sleeping in the sun.

I do have some canned pure pumpkin that I froze in little Tbs size portions ... I gave him that when he was constipated awhile back. Hubby thinks I should try to give him some today. What do you think?
