    I don't think this will help. I just want to give you some encouragement. My dog does that all the time. Sometimes twice a week. To me is like when I get something stuck to the side of my throat, that's what it reminds me of. Everything else about my dog normal and healthy. She's been doing that since she was a year old. She is 16 year and 4 months old. Hopefully u can do like I have and grow grass inside for times when it is to cold to take your dog out. I have nice looking pots in all my windows and grow grass all year round. Hopefully knowing that my dog hasn't suffered any ill effect from her behavior much like your dogs...will ease your worries some. I wish you both the best
