Customer Question

He has a hacking spazzy cough that wakes him up. Not been boarded so I do not think kennel cough. I am staying up to watch over him. No emg vet where I am. At a bone earlier I worry he could have some stuck or scstched throat. What do u think?
JA: I'll do all I can to help. Coughing can be worrying. The Veterinarian will know what you should do. Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about the dog?
Customer: He seems to cough up a little water. Then lcks his mouth when done. It is one after another. He is 48 pounds 12 yrs

How long has he had the cough?

Any difficulty with his breathing?

Can he take food and keep it down?

Are his gums pink or pale/white?
