I am sorry to hear you are worried about Yaya's coughing.

Is she eating and drinking normally?

If you lift her lip to look at her gums, are they pink or pale?

Dog Veterinarian: Rebecca, Dog Veterinarian replied 7 months ago

Sudden coughing can be from an infection or allergy. If her gums are pink and she is eating, she is not in immediate danger. She may need antibiotics from your veterinarian if it is an infection.

You can give her a little Robitussin DM, only the DM formula, about 1/4th teaspoon twice daily.

Her gum are pale but she has wanted to eat . She hasn’t drank water all day.
Dog Veterinarian: Rebecca, Dog Veterinarian replied 7 months ago

If her gums are pale, that is very concerning. She should be checked by a veterinarian as soon as possible.

Can you post a picture of her gums?

Is she able to breathe with her mouth closed?
