My dog keeps gagging
Monday my dog was in the backyard and I heard her retching. She eventually threw up, but then continued to gag- loudly every few minutes. After 40 minutes of this, I rushed her to the ER. They sedated her, examined her throat, which was irritated and took x rays of her stomach to be sure it hadn't flipped.
They sent me home with medication to squirt in her throat and put her on Prilosec. Since then she hasn't thrown up, but she has gagged several times throughout the day. Yesterday I was playing with her, and the threw her head back to catch a toy and that action caused her to gag. I think it's something more to do with her throat than her stomach.
I go back to the vet tomorrow for a re-check, but wondered if anyone has experienced this with their dog.
