I just asked a question about this a few minutes ago regarding care credit, but my dogs condition has since changed.
He ate a bottle cap while my head was turned and was kind of gagging or coughing for about 15 minutes. Not constantly but every 30 or so seconds he'd stop and cough. While he was doing this I was calling vets/etc to try and figure out what to do.
I am waiting for my mom to get home so she can apply for care credit, but that's going to be at least 45 minutes as her work is a long drive away.
Well, my dog has stopped gagging/coughing entirely and he drank a whole lot of water. He hasn't acted differently at all and is still the same hyper dog he always has been.
Do you think he swallowed the bottle cap(it's a plastic cap) since he is no longer coughing? I don't know what to do, I'm kind of stuck here since if care credit turns us down we have literally nothing to fall back on. Economy has hit my family pretty hard.
The dog is a 10 month old golden retriever.
Any help will be greatly appreciated.
