I have a resuce rat terrier I just got on Monday. I took her outside, after she did what she should, I gave her a tiny piece of a treat. She then started sort of coughing. I put my fingers down her throat in hopes of disloging the treat. Still coughing. Gave her some milk to try and wash it down. As long as she is resting she is fine. When she get up she starts to cough - like she is trying to get something out. It is sort of a hacking sound. I do not know what to do.
