Q. We gave our Pug a bath yesterday and tonight she sounds like she is trying to hack up something from her throat. What do we do?

A. If you think she has got something stuck in her throat then you should see your vet or emergency vet straight away. If it isn't this it could be a viral infection such as kennel cough or a respiratory tract infection, irritation or inflammation. In this instance contact your regular vet when they open.
