I believe my dog has foxtails stuck in her throat, is there

Customer Question

I believe my dog has foxtails stuck in her throat, is there something I can do for her tonight before I take her to a vet in the morning, or should she be taken to an emergency vet? She is gagging, coughing, and trying to eat literally anything in an attempt to "wash it down".

Hello, I am afraid that the expert you have requested is not currently available. Still I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you with your wee one today.
Can she keep down anything she has eaten?
Can you take a breathing rate for me (just count her breaths for 10 seconds + multiply by 6)?
Are her gums pink or pale/white?
