massage her throat -- she has some grain stuck in her throat causing her to gag and foam at the mouth

it sounds like she has something stuck, all right. SHe will cough and foam 'til she gets it up. Careful massaging, if the esophagus is spasming, you could damage it. If you have acepromazine, you had dose her accordingly. It will act as a relaxant and let the matter [pass. But I suspect she'll get it up on her own. The extra saliva acts as a lubricant. -- keep us posted

If it where me.... I would take her to the vet.... as the vet may need to go in with a tube to unblock her throat....

Make sure .....she doesn't eat anymore...as it will just build up to the point... that she will choke to death......

As I posted on another topic once, We were feeding our Nubian buckling apple slices and the way he chewed it the peel came off and made him do this too. It came out with all the foam he was producing.
