Roscoe just suddenly late afternoon started gagging,

Customer Question

Roscoe just suddenly late afternoon started gagging, coughing and vomited. Mostly looked like water. Then one time a little but but only that one time. His nose is wet and cool. He seems to having labored breathing.
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Hopefully it didn't make a mess. Did the dog eat anything unusual?
Customer: My mom thinks he I swallowed a nut but nothing unusual other than that. He eats if we stand and feed him. He has had chicken broth and can food
JA: What is the dog's name and age?
Customer: Roscoe. Unknown age. Maybe 5
JA: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Roscoe?
Customer: No. He is typically healthy. Nothing abnormal until yesterday afternoon. He is an indoor dog and goes outside through a doggie door to play or do his business
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Veterinarian about your situation and then connect you two.

Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you 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:

Does he appear to be breathing faster then 30 breaths in a minute?

Can he keep water down?

Are his gums pink or pale/white? Moist or sticky?

If you press on his belly, does he have any discomfort, tenderness, or tensing?

Do you mean a metal nut or an edible one?

Has he had any diarrhea?
