Lately Kingston has started making strange gagging noises, as if he has something stuck in his throat or he's trying to throw-up. He only does it when I get home from work. He gets really excited jumping up and down and then all of a sudden he stops and starts gagging. Does anyone know what might be causing this? I'm worried.

It's called the 'cavalier snort'. It happens because they are a short nosed (brachycephalic) breed. To stop it, gently tilt his head forward while covering his nostrils gently. It should stop almost immediately.
