Q. My dog has been throwing up a clear liquid (a little slimey) but otherwise acts fine. Could something be wrong?

A. How long has he been doing this? Ongoing vomiting (>2 weeks) warrants a vet visit, but if it's a one-off, or happens very infrequently then it could be due to something he ate disagreeing with him. Is he is bright, alert and happy in himself I would monitor him, start keeping a vomit journal (seriously) of when he vomits, how much, what the vomit was like, what he was doing before and any other notes. This will be really useful for your vet if it requires further investigatoon. You can also try bland food - boiled chicken and white rice - in small amounts on his vomit days to give his tummy a rest. Withhold for 8h after a vomit and reintroduce the bland diet in small, frequent meals.
