Has anyone here experienced a bruised windpipe with their Golden? I had to put Ruby back on a regular collar when walking to help heal her armpits from the harness. In the process of doing this it seems she may have bruised her windpipe. She is an extreme puller/yanker on her walks. I can't put a collar on her right now and if I do she starts to gag. She sounds like she is trying to get something out of her throat. She is eating and drinking fine and has no problem running around. When she was a puppy I remember her gagging and choking when she was wearing a collar. I am just wondering how long it takes to heal. Thanks for any advice.
