Lab pit mix dry hacking cough worse with movement or if he barks
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
No he hasn't been around other dogs
Dog Veterinarian: Sally G., Dog Training Consultant replied 7 months ago

Thank you for that information. Coughing can be due to kennel cough, lung infection or a heart problem.

Because he has not been around other dogs, we can omit kennel cough.

Because of this, I think it is important that you bring your dog in for an examination for possible lung infection or heart problem.

I am going to put some links here to Videos of dogs coughing, see if you can identify with one of them.
