She occasionally hacks and sounds like she is coughing hard

Customer Question

She occasionally hacks and sounds like she is coughing hard ...only the last few days
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Coughing can be worrying. The Veterinarian will know what you should do. What is the dog's name and age?
Customer: Khloe and 8 months I believe. She is a rescue
JA: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Khloe?
Customer: Ummm it looks like she is breathing hard when she is lying down but I'm not sure if that is because she is small and just breaths faster or what

Hello, I'm Dr. Deb and will do my best to help you today.

I'm sorry for this concern about Khloe. I do have a few additional questions to ask about her first if you don't mind:

1. Is she lethargic or still pretty active?

2. Any discharge from her nose?

3. Is she still eating and drinking?

4. I'm assuming she's had all of her puppy vaccinations?

Thanks, Deb
