My 1.8 lb Chihuahua cries loudly (not whining) apparent

Customer Question

My 1.8 lb Chihuahua cries loudly (not whining) for no apparent reason and only once on a daily basis for about 30 seconds...mostly at night. He is not injured nor sick. At first I thought he may be dreaming (nightmare) but no, he is awake sometimes. I can't figure out why he does this.

Is he having any trouble jumping up or doing stairs?

Does he do any coughing?

Have you had him seen for this?
