Yesterday my dog swallowed food as she bark, now her throat sounds raspy and her bark is quieter? What happened?

There could be some irritation in her pharynx area from that activity.  However, if she didn't cough a lot or start gagging, she probably didn't aspirate anything into her larynx and windpipe.  As long as there isn't something else going on with her upper respiratory tract, this should clear up in a couple of days.

If it doesn't or if she starts coughing or gagging, you should have her examined soon.
