I'm sorry to hear of this with LITSWDM. She's currently syncopal ("fainting") when she coughs and this is most often caused by advanced cardiopulmonary disorders such as congestive heart failure, chronic sterile bronchitis, heartworm disease, or neoplasia (cancer) in the chest. She needs the attention of her vet at your earliest convenience as she can be lost in one of these episodes. Her vet will want to perform a thorough physical exam including careful ausculatation (listening to) and X-rays of Lucy's chest and diagnostics in the form of blood and urine tests paying particular attention to her red blood cell count as profoundly anemic dogs can also behave in that manner. Please respond with further questions or concerns if you wish.
