    Default Ace gagging

    Ace woke us up at about 4 am this morning gagging as if he needed to throw up, this continued over a thirty minute time period or longer. He eventually threw up but it was just a small bit of yellowish spittle. While he is coughing and gagging it sounds gravelly like someone trying to clear their throat of mucus. Later this morning he still gags and acts like he is trying to cough something up but nothing ever comes out. Its not continual now just periodically. He eats, drinks and his bowel movements seem normal. He is a little subdued but not lethargic. I'm concerned that he may have something hung in his throat but not so large that he can't eat around it. I but my fingers as far back in his mouth and throat as I could and felt no obstruction. Anyone have experience with something similar?

    This happens to Georgie Girl, and for us it has been a mucus thing. Squirt some lemon juice from one of those plastic lemon juice containers in the back of his throat. The lemon juice helps break up the mucus.
    Good Luck.

    I would watch him as it sounds like something could be caught in his throat. He may have eaten something he should not have.

    I will continue to keep an eye on him. He has only gagged about once in the last hour and that was after he had some water. He has eaten the normal amount of food this morning and seemed to not have any difficulty swallowing. It does sound like mucous when he gags but I was/am concerned that something lodged in his throat, even though perhaps small enough to still allow him to eat, had the throat irritated and was causing the mucous. On occasions when he is sleeping and snoring there is the sound of mucous in his nostrils.

    Brutus did this when he decided to eat a rim off of my nephews play car...He was gagging b/c he was trying to throw it up which he did but it was quite scary! After about 20 mins he got it up! Had it been any bigger I think we would have had to go to ER. I would keep a close eye on him and if no change a vet visit may be needed! Hope its nothing! Keep us posted

    I was wondering if it could be allergies. Momo will start sounding like shes hacking - for lack of a better term, but nothing but clear stuff comes out. She doesn't do this often but usually when the flowers are starting to bloom.
    Hope he feels better soon, can't feel good on his little throat....maybe some doggie ice cream will help him...??? (I got your back, Ace!)

    He has only had about three episodes all day since the early morning spell he went through. He is eating, drinking like normal so we will see how he does. Thanks all for the reply's and concern.

    Spoke too soon. We were just playing and he stopped and dropped the ball and gagged some sputum up and it looked like it may have had a small trace of blood in it. He wasn't interested in fetching the ball any more after that which is very unusual for him he usually won't stop until he is all tired out
