Customer Question

She sounds like she is choking and then tries to throw up but I gave her a treat and she ate it with no problem. Sounds like she's choking. Not constant.
JA: OK. What is the dog's name and age?
Customer: Phoebe. 7 months. Yellow lab.
JA: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Phoebe?
Customer: No. She was fine until the middle of the night.
