Thank you for using Just Answer. My name is Rebecca; I am a veterinarian. Please give me a moment to type my answer.
I am sorry to hear you are worried about Shadowdancer. Is he eating and drinking normally?What is Tyrol problem?
Sudden onset of hacking can be from a respiratory infection, from irritation in the throat, allergies, or getting a weed seed caught under a tonsil. If he is eating and drinking and swallowing normally, and his gums are pink (not pale), he is probably not in immediate danger.When I see a dog that is hacking like this, and my examination and listening with a stethoscope are normal, and the dog is still eating normally, I usually treat with antibiotics and an anti inflammatory medication. If that does not help, I next sedate the dog to get a look under the tonsils.Please let me know if this helps, and what other questions I can answer.
