Customer Question

I have a 5 yr old pappion. Her name is Pequena, (pronounced Pekenya)She seems to gag on food, water or just about anything. I feed her small dog pedigree. She seems to like the canned better. I ran out of that and only have the dry. I do a version of the heilmuik on her until she doesn't gag anymore. I 'm gentle on her. I'm on a fixed income, so I can't just take her to a vet. Does this kind of dog normally have this problem? Thanks for your help.
