Hi, both had chicken wings and some beef for breakfast, one threw up around 4pm and neither wanted their tea (unheard of). Esther (first to throw up) is looking sorry for herself and Betty is now throwing up too, both just foamy saliva really.

I'm planning on seeing how they are in the morning and vets if no better, but does this sound like an emergency and something I should address now?

You know your dogs better than anyone, if you feel they need to be seen sooner rather than later I would contact a vet. Even if it's for some advice over the phone. Hope everything is ok.

I am not an expert & would definitely advise you seek expert advice but just to let you know what happened to my dog, albeit a very long time ago;

The breeder fed her a raw diet which I carried on with after I brought her home as a young puppy (chicken wings etc) She also got poorly with vomiting etc & it turned out to be salmonella which is really very serious (and a notifiable disease) She is now 15 but I never fed her a raw diet again after that... Seems to have done pretty well on dog food with sides!

Good luck, hope its just a simple & short-lived bug.
