Customer Question

Hi, my dog starting coughing today after he seemed to take a bite of food and take off running. We left and came back later and he seemed to cough up white mucous like he will was trying get something out of his throat. It comes and goes mainly when he runs. He is sleeping now with no issues. Any ideas of the problem ?

Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you today. I do apologize that your question was not answered before. Different experts come online at various times; I just came online, read about your wee one’s situation, and wanted to help.

What breed is he?

Is it a harsh or soft cough?

Any change to his breathing?

Can he still eat/drink and keep it down?
