Hello and thank you for your question. I am a Veterinary Nurse with over 15 years experience and I have assisted in the care of many pets with this particular medical concern. It would be my pleasure to assist you today. Is it possible for me to obtain some additional information from you about your companion?1) Do you have a video to share of the episodes? 2) Any diet change or new food tonight? 3) Any coughing? 4) What is being fed as a normal diet? Any human food? 5) Taking any regular meds?
JACustomer, we have to chat back and forth here. I do not have the capability of emailing you.

All that came through was a request for an email. You can scroll up and see what I can see, I believe. It should be the same on both your end and mine.
It looks like our conversation begin on May 12th and it's now June 2nd. That means that this has literally been going on for 3 weeks, if this remains a problem. I suspect that If this is going on without any progression of symptoms that you may be dealing with some acid reflux or even GI ulcers. Sometimes we can see this with persistent nausea, as well, but you'd likely see some drooling and/or vomiting with this.You can give her 0.5mg/pound of body weight of famotidine (regular pepcid) every 12-24 hours to see if this helps her symptoms. If it does not, I would recommend having her seen, some blood work run and possibly some GI x-rays to be sure that there is nothing causing the symptom that can be easily treated.If her gingivitis were to run further back into her mouth and be rather severe, sometimes we also see some tenderness that far back in the mouth and it can cause some gagging. Your vet likely would have mentioned this at the visit where the gingivitis was diagnosed, however.
