Q. . My 1 yr pom is restless,ate some dirt & plastics while plyng.struggling to breath & hiccuping.hv gvn him mox-250?looks like hair stuck in throat

A. This is not likely to be stuck in her throat, he is probably having severe nausea. This could be a reaction to what she ingested. If it didn't come out by the way of vomiting I think you need to take him to the vet urgently.

MOX-250 is way too much for such a small dog, it's more likely to aggravate the nausea rather than doing any good.
