My dog was hacking all night to the point of spitting up

Customer Question

My dog was hacking all night to the point of spitting up phlegm. It started after she ate last evening. I've already tried bread, honey and the Heimlech. About 3 - 4 weeks ago I adopted an older dog that had a slight sneeze/cough but was put on antibiotics immediately and it went away. The only reason I don't think it's Kennel cough is because I've seen it before and this happened right after she ate last evening.

Hello, this is Dr. Jess. I am sorry that your pup was having problems and no one was able to answer your question last night. How did your dog do overnight? If you apply pressure to her neck under her jaw, does she start coughing again?
