GSP...eight y/o...eating and drinking well, and looks heavier..Not choking ..but coughing...like he trying to get something out of his chest/throat or esophagus...scratches his throat on left side , as maybe he feels something in it..skin is irritated...my question is could he have exhaled a foreign body into lungs and trying to cough it out? Or would that have passed through his intestines...could something be enlarged in throat although he eats and drinks well?...he is also agitated and growls at times which is new for him...thing he needs an egd or chest X-ray? Which first since money is an issue.....thanks for your help
