Q. My pet dog is vomoting yellow and white foam since since two hours. Almost 7 times vomited. What can I give him to comfort him.

A. This amount of vomiting signifies that your pet has a severe case of gastritis (inflamed stomach). I am unsure if just over the counter products will help him, but you can try
1) Famotidine (Pepcid AC)- @ 0.5-1 mg/kg every 12hrs (1kg=2.2lb to help with your dosage calculation)
2) Bland diet- boiled plain chicken and rice or cottage cheese, or Low fat food like Purina EN Gastrointestinal
3) Pedialyte- as needed to help keep him hydrated

If your pets symptoms are not improving within the next 12-24 hrs then he should see a veterinarian for this. Poor guy may have eaten something he shouldn't have and at this rate he is at risk to getting severely dehydrated. The vet should check him over and also may want to run some tests to ensure an underlying disease process isn't the cause of his sudden illness.
