My dog was chewing a burr out of his paw and now he's gagging and coughing

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

Just about 1/2 hour ago, he is not the most accepting of assistance and will bite, so i didn't get much cut out. He has been trying to wipe his tongue off on the carpet. I did give him some peanut butter, and he took it. No vomiting
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
Never mind. This is just not working. Thanks any way.
