    Default Phloem and heaving (ew! i know)

    i'm very curios to know if anybody else has experienced their dog heaving (like a cat with furball in their throat) for a few minutes and then producing a phloem which tends to land smack dab ontop of judy's head?! Should she be this phloemy? it does look uncomfortable the first time i saw this happening i thought she was choking and was reADy to attempt a doggy heimlich manouevre! Any suggestions/ experience of this heaving etc. ?

    How old is she and how often does she do this?

    I've found that either too much water too quickly on an empty stomach, or grass can have this result.

    My Lily is a cougher but never brings anything up -- but she sounds like an old man hawking one up . The coughing could relate to MVD but I'd doubt it at a low murmur grade.

    Annie does this but doesn't bring it up. She clears the back of her throat and it does sound like she has a lot of drainage. Put her on Temaril P and when she has it all the symptoms go away-we're managing on 1/2 tab every other day and I don't like it b'cuz of the steroid but she's a lot more comfortable.
