Hello, I'm Dr. Deb and will do my best to help you today. I'm sorry for this concern for your dog. I do have a few additional questions to ask about him if you don't mind: 1. How long has he been coughing?2. Any other symptoms such as weight loss or exercise intolerance (he tires easily)?3. Has he been seen for this condition? There may be a slight delay after I receive your answers since I have to type up a response to you. Thanks for your patience. Deb
