Customer Question

Dog is coughing & gagging like something is stuck. She's fine otherwise. I did put my finger back as far as I could & I felt something flat & wide. It seems to be gone now but she's still coughing a little bit.
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Coughing can be worrying. The Veterinarian will know what you should do. What is the dog's name and age?
Customer: Her name is Daisy & she is about 7 yrs. old
JA: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Daisy?
Customer: She kept running around this morning eating weeds, grass trying to throw up. Nothing really came up.
