Hi there,

Thanks for your question regarding your girl Maddie. This gagging/retching could be due to a primary gastrointestinal issue, or this could be a reaction to her vaccination. Is she otherwise ok? Is she drinking as per normal? Any sign of hives or fast breathing?

I will wait to hear from you.
