Hi, JACustomer. I'm so sorry to hear that your girl is having gagging issues following a run.

1) How often do you run with her?
2) Is she on any meds at this time?
3) Can you attach a video showing the gagging behavior?
4) Is she pawing at her face or producing anything when she gags?
5) Any abdominal distention or pacing behavior?
