Aloha! You're speaking with Dr. Michael Salkin
I'm sorry that your question wasn't answered in a timely manner. Such gagging may be an important symptom but isn't pathognomonic (specifically indicative) of any one disorder. It can represent simple irritation in Krystal's naso- or oropharynx ("back of her throat"), infection such as infectious tracheobronchitis ("kennel cough"), or perhaps GI distress causing gastroesophageal reflux (GERD, acid reflux, heartburn).
If Krystal has already remissed, there's no need to pursue a diagnosis. If she has continued to gag or, indeed, worsened or new symptoms have arisen, it would be prudent to have her vet take a look. Her vet can sedate Krystal so that a thorough exam of the back of her throat can be made. It frustrates me that I can't be more specific for you from here. I, too, would need to carefully examine Krystal up close and personal.
Please respond with further questions or concerns if you wish.
