Hello this is Dr. Holloway but you can call me Dr. H. I am sorry no one was available to answer your question when you first posted. I am just now getting online and wanted to help. I am sorry to hear that your pet seems to have something caught in his throat. This can be very dangerous if there is a foreign body lodged in the larynx or pharynx area. Besides the vomiting what is your pet doing that makes you think something is actually in the throat area? (any pawing at the throat, difficulty breathing, raspy noises coming from the throat, etc)- Dr. H
