Pharyngitis experience by - wanda
my 4 year old toy poodle has had some random coughing and gagging then vomiting yellow foamy liquid for the past couple of years. She is a very picky eater but still eats every day. She loves to play ball, take walks and visit with neighbor dogs. After she has one of her gagging/vomiting spells she seems tired for a while. Our vet said dogs do this sometimes but I am taking her in tomorrow because her symptoms seem like this condidtion. We are asking for a sonagram to be sure.
