My 6yr old Golden does the same thing - but only once in a blue moon. However, not in the last two years or so. She is not at all overweight. For a female she is tall, 22.5" at the shoulders and weights 59lbs. But, it really freaks me out when she does it. It can carry on for several minutes, and the look in her eyes, tells me she is freaking out too. It just about seems like a panic attack. I just try and console her by voice and petting. I hadn't thought of rubbing her throat. Is there anything else that can be done, at that very moment, to help it subside? Is there a possibility this might actually be, a panic attack of sorts?? (It seemed to happen when I was going through a rough time in my own life - could it have been associated )
