My dog is vomiting a thick mucous.

Take the dog to your local vet. Vomiting can be serious in animals and they can become dehydrated very quickly if the vomiting is not controlled.

Get her to a Vet NOW. She either has ingested a poison, or she has severe issues you can't treat. I can't even give you advice, this is a serious issue,the most likely cause is poison, the next likely is she an illness that needs intervention. She is not staying fed or hydrated, and that alone can cause her death.

If it happens more than once or twice in a few hours I would suggest checking with your vet. If you can't afford a vet visit right now, try giving the dog a childrens dose of gravol or similar nausea medicine. The mucous vomit usually comes after the dog eats lots of grass, usually the dog had nausea before.

It is best to withhold food for 24 hours and water for 12 hours to rest the digestive system. If vomiting has stopped, then offer water and bland food (such as boiled chicken and rice) in small amounts. If your dog continues to vomit or has diarrhea, take him to a vet as this can be a serious problem.

If the dog is throwing up mucus it may signify a bile unbalance in the dog's stomach. This is called Bilious Vomiting Syndrome. You can try feeding the dog a snack in the middle of the night and if that doesn't help, take him to a vet!

You should definitely take your dog to your vet immediately, since your dog probably needs medication, probably antibiotics. Your vet may do testing for other conditions as well.

Call the emergency vet and see if they can get your dog in right away. Your dog may have a very serious problem and the vet is the best person to look at it and see what is going on.
