Dog cough’s and what they mean

If your dog cough’s, don’t take it lightly. There are certain types of coughs that may be serious. Here’s a description of certain types of dog coughs and what they may mean.

  1. A high, weak cough that sounds like gagging followed by swallowing and licking the lips could be  tonsillitis and sore throat.
  2. A moist, bubbling cough indicates fluid or phlegm in the lungs could suggest pneumonia.
  3. A dry, hacking cough that is made worse after exercise or excitement could mean kennel cough.
  4. A spasm of prolonged coughing during the night or while lying down on the sternum could mean heart disease. This was the case with my dog who had heart failure.

Any cough could be serious so have them checked by your vet as soon as you can.

Remember, your pets count!
