You should be very much concerned about your dog's condition consistent foamy vomiting in dogs can leads to life threatening conditions. If your dog is throwing white foam occasionally then no need to worry but on consistent basis, it is harmful. This foamy vomiting can be due to bloat that can very serious complication if not treated. This condition can cause stomach twisting by putting pressure on the GI tract. Symptoms of bloat are
  1. Restlessness
  2. Pacing
  3. White foamy or unproductive vomiting
  4. Drooling
You should take your dog to vet for diagnosis and treatment.

Acute vomiting has many causes.  Most cases resolve in 24-48 hours without the underlying cause being determined.  If your dog is otherwise well and not showing any other signs like vomiting you should withhold food for 24 hours.  Allow access to plenty of clean fresh water.  After 24 hours, if all goes well you can feed a low fat easily digestible meal like cooked chicken and rice.  Gradually reintroduce the animal's normal diet over the next 2 days.  If the vomiting persists or your animal begins to show other signs of being unwell you should see a vet.

My Vet finally came to the conclusion that when my dog coughs and spits up white foam it could be allergies. She does this every couple of months. I give her 1/3 of a Benadryl which seems to work.

How old is your dog, as well, has it eaten something you don't know about. Best to keep plenty of fresh water, and if this continues, get to vet as soon as possible

If I were you I would take your cat to the vet because in the case of white foam it might have rabies
