There are a number of reasons why small breed dogs will develop coughs.

1. Exposure to other dogs like might be carrying an infectious disease like Bordetella

2 Being vaccinated for Bordetella- sometimes these pets will display clinical signs of the disease.

3. Collapsing trachea- This is typically something that I present in small breed dogs and an worsen over time as they age. This tends to be worse when they get excited or stressed.

4. Chronic bronchial disease- I am always a bit more concerned about this in small breed dogs with severe dental disease as this bacteria can lead to intermittent airway problems. Sometimes it can get so severe that they need to be on antibiotics, however, nothing is as good as having the dental disease addressed.

5. Other- so there are many other reasons why a pet will present with coughing that typically require a thorough exam. Some of which include heart disease, pneumonia, allergies, etc.

If we think that it might be related to her vaccine or allergies, you always have the option of trying an antihistamine with her like Benadryl to see if it helps that symptoms. This is not harmful and can sometimes help with coughing. How much does she weigh?

She weighs 4 lbs
Dog Veterinarian: Dr. Nicole, Dog Veterinarian replied 10 months ago
you could try to give her a 1/4 tsp of children's Benadryl twice daily to see if it helps with the cough. If it is not improving and seems to be getting worse, then you may want to have her examined to ensure that there is nothing else going on.Please let me know if you have any questions. I am happy to help you through this situation.
