If your dog is gagging and barking, what does it mean?

I have already taken her to the vet, but she still is gagging. I would like to know what it is, even though the vet says that she is fine. Help?

First , I am not a veterinarian. I do know that sometimes dogs make a sound which could be interpreted as gagging but is really "backwards sneeze." My vet uses this term for the phenomenon. If there is a medical term for it, I don't know what it is. But it is harmless. If the dog starts doing it, you can try to calm the dog and distract them out of it. This often works. Good luck.

She may have figured out that sound gets her attention and is doing it on purpose
