My toy poodle is gagging. almost like something is on her…

Hi, my toy poodle...

Hi, my toy poodle is gagging. almost like something is on her throat. it's on and off. but I can tell she is uneasy. and wanting to spit or throw up i made her drink water and gave her yogut

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. Hopefully it didn't make a mess. Did your toy poodle eat anything unusual?

Not really but i had given her few pieces of shredded chicken

Veterinarian's Assistant: What is your toy poodle's name and age?

Belle and she is 6 yrs old

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Belle?

No. she had her annual check up last weekend and everything is healthy

no. i had it for dinner and i just gave her 2 shredded of it
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
she just spit a phlem right now and seems okay

Okay

I think this is just acute gastritis and I am not too worried

Can you please give her 1/2 of a Pepcid AC 10.0 mg now and in the AM

That should settle the stomach

Water is fine

No food till tomorrow AM

Okay?

Paul
