Otherwise, I’ll be happy to assist you today. Is it possible for me to obtain some additional information from you about your companion?1) Has she had any history of collapsing trachea?2) Is she on any medications? 3) Have you seen any vomiting since the incident? 4) Any problems eating since then?
