Hey guys... I might be a bit paranoid... but just now while sleeping, Mika suddenly starts to cough (sounds dry), she did 3-4 coughs and ended with a gag. Did this two times, switched a position and went back to sleep... her sleeping breathing rate is still normal - 16-18bpm.
Coincidently yesterday morning she had a bout of nausea (hard swallowing and grass eating, and also coughed once during the swallowing episode) which I contribute to either the sudden lunge she made the night before when she saw a cat on our walk, thus jerking on her collar, or the addition of fish oil the night before (I probably added too much too quickly), contacted vet who say it could be throat inflammation from the acid reflux or from the collar jerking and that it should heal with time. The hard swallowing lasted till about noon yesterday, and then slowly subsided. She was all good today, and then the cough happened, she was also doing a few hard swallow/gulps again just now, maybe it was due to the throat inflammation? It’s been exactly one month from our cardiologist visit, is it too early to start worrying about possible CHF cough?
P.s she had a similar episode about 3 months ago one night, woke up in the middle of the night, cough and gagged for a minute, and was all good since.
