Puppy vomited 2 days back. Now it is gagging, no vomit

Customer Question

New puppy vomited once two days ago. Now it is like gagging, no vomit comes up. Eating, drinking, poop very nice; active when awake. 8 weeks old. Had first two shots and wormed. Spayed Monday. Kennel cough vaccine given on 7/26
I did switch food. Maybe too rich in chicken and rice, now eats well
My dog's name is Lucy. I took her to vet on Friday, no temp; lungs clear when she gags. Sounds flemy.

Hello & welcome,
Do you think she has any coughing or throat clearing before the gagging?
What did her vomit look like?
Are her gums nice and pink (not white/pale)? Moist or sticky?
If you press on her belly, does she have any tensing, tenderness, discomfort, or pain?
Could she have eaten anything she should not have (i.e. bones, toys, plants, chemicals, human meds, etc)?
