Boston health question

I receiver a call from my mother tonight asking me where the nearest emergency vet was. I told her and asked her what was wrong. She told me emo was not breathing. Emo is my boston terrier i grew up with, but stayed with my parents while I was in college and then moved out of the house. Emo is the one in my user icon.
They rushed her to the clinic and did xrays. Xrays didnt show anything and by this point her breathing was getting better. My mom then explained what happened.
Emo was chewing on this bone that she gets once a week. it is one of those that is meant to be ate. It is not a rawhide but sort of. my mom watches them while they eat them to ensure they don't get a chunck off and choke. Emo then stopped eating it and went over and stood by my dad. They noticed emo was shaking and was having difficulty breathing. Emo also would not walk. They rushed her to the emergency vet. The xrays don't show anything so the vet does not think she was choking on a piece of the bone. They gave her medicine to relax her throat to keep her air waves open.
My mom says they are now home, but she still is not acting quite right. My mom wondered if she had a stroke, but when i googled the symptoms of a dog stroke it does not seem to match up.
Emo is about nine years old.
Anyone had similar experience?
