He just started making...

He just started making this strange noise today

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. What is wrong with the dog?

I’ve got a video but I’m not sure I can send it here?

Veterinarian's Assistant: Where does the dog seem to hurt?

He just stands up and starts doing a very strange heaving noise, so I first I thought he was going to vomit or he was choking but then nothing comes out, and then it just stops and a few minutes later it starts again

Veterinarian's Assistant: Hopefully it didn't make a mess. Did the dog eat anything unusual?

No not at all

Veterinarian's Assistant: What is the dog's name and age?

He’s 3 and his name is oscar

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Oscar?

He had pancreatitis a month ago
