Customer Question

My dog keeps hacking/dry heaving it seems and is shaking. Symptoms come and go. Seels she is good for a day then starts displaying symptoms
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. What is the dog's name and age?
Customer: Nala and she is 5
JA: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Nala?
Customer: This issue started only 5 days ago the first night had vomit involved, but none since then
JA: Hopefully it didn't make a mess. Did Nala eat anything unusual?
Customer: Nothing unusual. Every time we get her to the vet, she seems to be fine and all vitals are normal.

Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you with your wee one today.

Can she keep food and water down?

Are her gums pink or pale/white?

Any change in her breathing?

Any access to chews, irritating chemicals or anything harmful she could have eaten?
