Good morning, I would like to know what my dog may have coughed up, what may be causing this persistent hacking cough which on occasion he may bring up something but tends to swallow it. Lastly is there anything I can do or give him to alleviate or soothe the cough. Can safely exclude lung worm as has been treated recently and is on Noroclav antibiotics. Your thoughts would be much appreciated. Thank you

I am in the U.K., and I am en route to another part of the country so a phone call is not possible.

Do you have pictures of what as produced?

Can you also provide video of the coughing you witness?
