Hello, I am afraid that the expert you have requested is not currently available. Still I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you with your wee one today.
How long has he had these signs?
Is he coughing or gagging?
Can he eat and drink? Does he keep it down?
Are his gums nice and pink (not white/pale)? Moist or sticky?
If you press on his belly, does he have any tensing, tenderness, discomfort, or pain?

He seems okay now. . he wasn't coughing or gagging. he just looked like he was trying to get something out of his throat. he can drink water and keep it down. his gums are pink and he doesn't have any of the belly symptoms. he is calm now, so I think he was able to dislodge whatever was stuck.

Thank you,
I am glad to hear that he has settled.
Since he's not in need of aid regarding this situation, shall I refer you back to customer service?
