JRT, 9yrs.: Throat spasms

JRT got into trash...perhaps consumed small particals of nut shells...pecans, walnuts, acorn....

Gave him 2 tbl. spoons of vanilla ice cream.  Didn't help much.  Then, A tablespoon of melted butter!!!  Has been going on for 2 hours now.  Not lethargic...just quiet.  When it begins it happens several times in a row.  Lying in my lap.  Rub his throat lightly.  

Allergic reaction?  What do you think?  25 mg. of benadryl?  

Help folks!!!

Afraid there might be something stuck or irritated so don't think I would be rubbing his throat.
Can't advise you on using the Benadryl. If an allergy, there might be other symptoms, not sure.
I hesitate giving advice in this situation but you might try a few "small" pieces of damp bread. Maybe a trip to the Vet is in order.

Thank you so much for replying!  I called the vet.  Confirmed it could be allergic reaction and/or irritation.  Gave him 25 mg of benadryl at 8:30pm MST & again at 4:00am.  He sleeping & snoring all snuggled in the bed!  We'll see what happens in the morning.  Thank you again, much appreciated!

Hello.  He's fine!  I gave him one 25mg. of Benadryl & another 8 hours later.  He woke up in the morning bright eyed & bushy tailed!  Barked his head off at everyone all day!  No more Christmas nut sell spills allowed.
Thank you Margot49...Merry Christmas!!
