My name is***** need to ask a few more questions before I can give a good answer. Is your dog still able to breathe normally? Is she coughing and gagging and bringing up white foamy stuff? Is she retching, gagging or throwing up yellow bile or food? Has she been around other dogs in the past 5-7 days? Does the gagging sound like she is snorting inwards through her nose?

Please reply to these questions so I can give you more information about your dog.
