Welcome and thanks for asking your question. My name is***** am a licensed veterinarian. I am sorry for the delay in response. If you would like to continue can you please answer a few questions so that I can be well informed and give you the best advice.

1- How long has this been going on?

2- Is it fair to say that the throwing up was secondary to the coughing?

3- Is the cough like gagging/hacking?

4- Any pre existing medical conditions?

5- How much does she weigh?

There may be a slight delay between your follow ups and my replies as I type out a thorough reply for you.
