I'm sorry that your question wasn't answered in a timely manner. Please let me know if you still need help. May I have an update on Bailey, please?

While any age dog can cough due to a simple respiratory infection such as the infectious tracheobronchitis complex, I need to consider more dire causes of coughing in a 13 year old - advanced cardiopulmonary disorders such as congestive heart failure, chronic sterile bronchitis, heartworm disease, pneumonias, and neoplasia in the chest cavity. Bailey's vet will want to carefully auscultate (listen to) and X-ray her chest as part of a thorough physical exam.

Has Bailey associated with other dogs within 3-10 days ago - the incubation period of infectious tracheobronchtitis?
