Customer Question

I have a 14 year old golden that dry heaves... Why? I think it started almost 2 years ago, but it was rare then. Now she does it multiple times a day, for no apparent reason.

Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you with today. I do apologize that your question was not answered before. Different experts come online at various times; I just came online, read about your wee one’s situation, and wanted to help.
Again I do apologize that my colleagues could not aid you sooner, but can you tell me:
Has she had any change in appetite, thirst, or weight?
Does she heave or retch after food, before, or at any particular time of day?
Any coughing or throat clearing otherwise?
Is it worse at certain times of year?
Does she have any chance of voice, increased respiratory noise, or snoring?
