Hi! A deep/gagging/hacking cough in young dogs who are eating is likely related to an infectious tracheitis, or kennel cough, of which we are seeing A LOT of right now. Has Eva been to the groomer, dog park, day care, etc where there would be contact with other dogs in the last few weeks?
Is she having trouble breathing? Are her gums pink?
Ok, so hopefully just a passing irritation/inflammation. If she was having airway issues you would be noting trouble breathing by now
Yes, just like us, dogs can occasionally have some coughing episodes to clear their airway
You are welcome!
Have a good day!
