Recently my dog has been retching a few times throughout

Customer Question

Hello
Recently my dog has been retching a few times throughout day. He is never sick just retches. He is eating and drinking fine . I don't know if it's a coincidence but he also has developed terribly bad breath and I didn't know if it could be related

Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you today. I do apologize that your question was not answered before. Different experts come online at various times; I just came online, read about your wee one’s situation, and wanted to help.

Again I do apologize that my colleagues could not aid you sooner, but can you tell me:

How long has he had these signs?

Did the vet just check his throat in an exam? Was he sedated? Was a scope used?

Are his gums pink or pale/white? Moist or sticky?

If you press on his belly, any discomfort, tenderness, or tensing?

Could he have eaten something he should not have (ie bones, toys, plants, chemicals, etc)?
