Hi, I remember

I assumed this would last a few days, she is still making that sound this morning like something is in her throat. I probably should read online but once again people say it could have done permanent damage. Should I take her in at a some point, is there anything her doctor can do?

How often is she clearing her throat?

Has she been around other dogs? Dog Parks? in the last 10 days

She's never around other dogs or dog parks. This started the other night shortly after our walk with the collar. She sleep through the night without doing it. its definitely not constant. When she gets excited or tries to bark.

If it's not constant I would expect it to last no longer than 7 days. If it gets worse, if she can't sleep, or if she is coughing up yellow or red mucus then I would have her seen.
