I'm glad the breeder and vet are going to take a look at her. And I'm glad you've got videos so they can see exactly what is happening. I hope you get some answers soon and an easy treatment plan to stop the gagging. Sending positive puggie vibes for your little girl.

My Pug Remy was given the kennel cough vaccine up the nose by the breeder just before we got him. He was sniffly, snotty, and we assumed it was typical for pugs since he was our first. Turns out he got very sick with pneumonia. I am convinced the nasal shot was to blame. I know most won't recommend them.
Perhaps allergies, to something in his bed/room, or acid reflux? Also, i'm not sure what you are using now but stick with a harness not a collar that goes around the neck since Pugs are prone to tracheal issues which can also cause gagging and coughing.
Hope you and the vet can figure it out.
That's what happened to the boy I gave it to years ago. I didn't mention what it was ...just suggested the vet again ...as I didn't want to scare the owner.

She has had a gag/cough since I brought her home. This was even before the kennel cough vaccine in the nose. The breeder said some of the other dogs were gagging and coughing also. So I wonder if they have a respiratory infection.
I hope all the puppies will be o.k! Sometimes Pugs have elongated soft palates & nostrils that are too tiny, but your puppy might be too young to determine if that might be the problem--I think sometimes the nostrils can change as they grow.....but since it only seems to happen at night when she sleeps, I wonder if the soft palate could be relaxing & causing her to cough? It might be another question for the vet....please keep us posted! I hope your baby will be fine!

Hmm acid reflux sound plausible. I am glad your Breeder works with you ! It’s very important to have a breeder you can ask questions and contact .
The vet will take a look at the video and perhaps sheds some light on the issue. I also thought the allergy theory is possible . Maybe try switching the bed or location ?
