Gulping and Swallowing
I was wondering if anyone could help me with a question. Tillie tends to gulp / swallow quite a bit, when not eating. I doesnt seem to bother her. She also licks us and the air a lot. Has anyone else experienced this? She is about 6 years old and generally healthy. The vet seems to think she may have a food allergy so we stopped feeding her lamb as this seems to be the culprit. I make all of her food. Hope someone can help. Thanks Catherine

Cooper gulped/swallowed a lot about 2 years ago and I found out he had a throat infection. I'm guessing that since your vet is aware of the issue that this isn't the case for your dog.
With that being said Cooper has continued to gulp/swallow on and off for about 1 year, but only at night when he's in bed. 2 of his vets assumed it must be some kind of allergy as his nose also runs and we've tried all medications as well as a plain diet. I've taken away lots of toys and different materials and nothing seemed to work. About a month ago I noticed that it has completely stopped and can only guess that in Cooper's case, it's season allergies. He's not bothered by it at all.
Also, licking the air is a sign of nausea.

That was the reason Dudley was took in to the ER the other nite. He was swallowing over and over. I thought he had something hung in his throat. It was toncillitus. Wouldn't hurt to get a second opionion. Infections need to be took care of. Dudley has been on antibotics and something to coat his throat for a week. He is doing great now. Hope your baby gets better because something is wrong somewhere.

That is what happened to Rosie at the first of this year. We had to go to the ER vet on a Sunday. She kept swallowing and it sounded "thick". Don't know how else to describe it. They said she had a throat infection that was possibly tonsillitis. she was also very clingy to me. Antibiotics and she was fine.
Has the vet seen her or was it a phone consultation?
