Have Dog Health Questions? Ask a Dog Vet Online.
My dog keeps coughing and hacking like she has something stuck in her throat. She has still been eating and drinking like normal but I am not sure what to do for her. It sounds like she is trying to vomit but nothing comes up.
What should I do?
I have a few questions that will help me better understand why your dog is coughing.Has your dog been exposed to any other dogs at a dog park or in a kennel recently?Did your dog get a Kennel Cough vaccine lately?Has your dog be out where there are grass awns or in running in fields with lots of plant growth?
She was kennelled about three weeks ago, but she did a bordatella vaccine in February of 2009. She hasn't been coughing since we brought her home, the coughing started yesterday. She does however like to chew on plants and grass in our back yard.
