My ~3 year old ~cairn terrier, started having some problems

Customer Question

hi. my ~3 year old ~cairn terrier, started having some problems at the end of our walk, about .5mile. it was either trouble breathing or maybe wanting to spit up, as his body would kind of convulse, maybe it was hiccups. This lasted for about 10 minutes, it seems to be subsiding now as he begins to rest
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Have you looked to see if there is a wound on their foot?
Customer: his feet seem ok
JA: What is the terrier's name and age?
Customer: Louie, just past 3 years. We call his birthday july 11, but he was a rescue we got him about 2 years ago
JA: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about his?
Customer: not that I can think of

Is he still showing signs at this time of being unwell? If so, can you provide a video of what you're seeing?
