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 he coughing anything up? Is he coughing only when he is active?

Okay thanks for the additional information. How long have you had him for? Does it sound like a goose honk? With his age and his breed a couple of issues cause this coughing. One issue that can occur is a collapsing trachea. This is when the windpipe collapse everytime they get excited. Another issue is a heart issue which can be common in chihuahua as well. This can be diagnosed with a physical exam and chest x-rays.
