ok so this morning i herd her coughing really loud.
As the day went on she didnt cough but tonight has come and she is doing it again. Sometimes she gags. She makes the same noise a cat does when trying to cough up a hair ball.
She is drinking alot to.
I am worried as i got a new rug yesturday and ninja started tearing the sring bits off it, could it be she has some string stuck in the back of her throat?????

Hmm, is she otherwise acting okay? That would worry me since she swallowed the string. Does it seem like she is trying to vomit but nothing is coming out? Is she going to the bathroom? Eating?

Watch her if she keeps I up today get her to the vet tomarrow, this just happened to my daughters dog, he ate a rug made of long strings and the got wrapped very tight around his intestines, and he was 100% blockage. He had to have emergency surgery and he got bad infection and they gave him 50% chance to live, Thank God he made it. He is heal good and just got his staples out. Cost her 1,500.00 to vet. If the rug is short strings not sure if can wrap around her intestines but can still make a blockage. Ill Pray for Nijna..

I wouldn't take her into the er vets there won't be a blockage if she's eating and pooing. If there was one she would be straining to go.

She could have had a frog in her throat the string could have been coughed up and you didn't see. Watch her and call ur vet but I don't think this warrants er vet. But that's my opinion do what makes you feel most comfortable

My dog arwen does that, she has sever allergies, and if she eats something she's not supposed to she will start to do that, its very similar to a reverse sneeze, and is terrible to watch, i just massage her throat and give her a tiny bit of baby benadryl and it stops. If it continues I would have the vet check her for seasonal or food allergies

How is she doing? Zoey has done this and finally at the end of the day she threw up a peice (a stringy piece) of a bully stick. It must have been stuck in her throat as she was gagging all day. Then she was fine.

My sister's mother-in-law will stick her finger down her dog's throats to get stuff out. I have fingernails. I'm scared I'll hurt them.
