Hello my name is***** and I am a licensed veterinarian with over 9 years of experience. I am hoping to help you with your pet today. Since I can’t physically exam your pet, I may need to respond with several follow up questions so I can best help you. Remember there is no limit on how many questions you can ask to in order to clarify any information I have provided regarding your pet. I just have a few initial questions to ask to gather some more information if you don’t mind? Is she coughing anything up? Does she only cough when she is active?

When she coughs she stops and Coughs whenever. Or when someone pays her back..... She likes getting her neck rubbed so when someone rubs her neck she starts coughing. It sounds like she wants to cough something up..... She only coughs up some white flem.... All I know is it freaks me out when she coughs cause it sounds like she's chocking but she's not.

Oh that is fine, can you let me know if she is coughing anything up? Is she coughing only when she is active, or does it occur no matter what she is doing?

She caughs just whenever.....or when we pat her back. She hasnt caughed up anything....just white flem.....or white foamy stuff
Dog Veterinarian: Dr. Alleyne, Dog Veterinarian replied 1 year ago
What type of dog is Mocha? Has she been around any other dogs? The first thing I think about with coughing is some type of upper respiratory infection. If she is a smaller breed dog then I would be worried either about some type of cardiac condition or a problem with her windpipe.

Chihuahua. I called a vet but they didn't really help me out. Except one told me they had a few dogs come in with fox tail problems..... So I thought maybe a fox tail..... The only dog she's around is her boyfriend but neither of them have been around other dogs
Dog Veterinarian: Dr. Alleyne, Dog Veterinarian replied 1 year ago
So she is a small breed dog. So it is a possibility that she may have an issue called collapsing trachea. This can be quite common in breeds like chihuahua. This is caused because as dogs get older sometimes the tissue in the trachea weakens causing it to collapse when they inhale. Usually they have to be permanently placed on some type of cough suppressant. But you may also need to rule out heart disease as well. When was his last physical exam?

About 2 months ago..... Vet said shes pretty healthy....
Dog Veterinarian: Dr. Alleyne, Dog Veterinarian replied 1 year ago
Okay good so I am assuming that they did not hear any heart murmurs. So that would put heart disease lower on my list. So that would leave collapsing trachea which would need to be treated with some type of cough suppressant or a possible kennel cough which would require some type of antibiotic.

Why kennel cough..... Is that air born??? I also, this might sound crazy but is there any meds I can get for at Walmart or pet store.... Like I mentioned earlier I would take her to vet but $$ is my problem..... I would only have enough for meds.....
Dog Veterinarian: Dr. Alleyne, Dog Veterinarian replied 1 year ago
Unfortunately the medications required to treat these issues requires a prescription from a veterinarian, so you won't be able to get those over the counter. However if you are short on money you may be able to ask your veterinarian to write a prescription. Some pharmacies offer $4 prescription on certain medications.

Kennel cough can potentially be airborne so any other pets can be at risk of catching it if it is kennel cough
