My 4 year old DSH Yuki just started vomiting a white, frothy liquid about 15 minutes ago. She did this 6 or 7 times, then came over to me and acted as if nothing happened. She is currently sleeping in her bed. We do not leave any medications or chemicals out, so is there anything else it could be? Bad bug swallowing, perhaps?

Both my dogs and our cat have done this, sometimes after chewing on something they shouldn't and sometimes for no reason that I could tell. If it was only for that short time and your cat is acting fine otherwise, I wouldn't worry too much. If she is still vomiting, however, or is having any other problems, then I would take her to the emergency vet.

i agree with kris. it is also possible that she is very hungry since there is nothing but white frothey liquid. try giving her something she likes to eat

try feeding her chicken and brown rice. this is gentle on the stomach and it sounds like she needs something in there. she may just have an upset stomach or she may have eaten something she shouldn't. things that are bad for dogs aren't limited to meds, cleaners, and bugs - there's a whole array of plants and people food and foreign objects that can upset them as well. if she continues to throw up or is sleeping too much or appears dazed at all, contact your vet.
