    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!

    Yours in health,

    12 pound Chihuahua / Pin something lodged in throat?
    SusanGF posted:
    Trying to avoid a vet visit if I don't have to, I'm just not sure what is going on. She was fine yesterday, let her out with siblings to small fenced area. Came back in gagging like she had eaten grass. Thought she ate some grass or allergies. Problem is today she isn't right. Chow hound not interested in food - at all- lethargic. Has a slight rattle sometimes also a small snore. Can't get her interested in anything. She is breathing, not coughing or gagging but OBVIOUS she is not right. She snores normally in her sleep, she is overweight and also has a somewhat puggle face. Snoring noise now when she is awake. Anything I can do at home? Vets are really expensive here.
