Coughing up in dogs

Common Questions and Answers about Coughing up in dogs

coughing

Take her to the vet tomorrow but don't give her nitro, it might help if she has some specific heart problems but using drugs without knowing what's causing the signs is never good. Is she coughing? when dogs or cats cough too many times in a row it's normal to have a gag and even to vomit after that. Maybe her problem is in the upper airways or maybe she just ate something that's causing her to gag.
That night we went to bed, and my little guy whose never had a problem before suddenly started like coughing up a hairball, until I looked and foam was coming out his nose, and mouth. The next morning he awoke and was walking w/a slight crook in his neck. so took him down to vet. I was told it was/had something to do w/his ear so he have my dog large dose of prednezone, and a sedative abd gave ne two bottles of meds, and told me he should be fine.
This would normally be for Senior Dogs...... Heart Disease is NOT a death sentence.....It's rather common in dogs! Dogs can live many ,many years on medications just like humans can.....Meds. to improve function of the heart & also lasix to clear fluid from the lungs......An EKG or ECG can detect what part of the heart is having a problem.....They usually run around $100.....Some Vets will suggest this test, some will not...They will just go ahead and treat...

This happens in some dogs when they first wake up, the stomach is empty from not eating all night and there is a buildup of acid. You can try an experiment to see if this is what it is - try feeding your dog a small snack late at night or, if you wake up during the night, give her a cookie or two.
I would have to do some reading up on this issue in dogs. I am somewhat familiar with delayed motility in people so am assuming the "mechanics", so to speak are the same. Sounds like he has an irritated gut too. He needs to be on a bland food that is easily digested. Try cooking up some chicken (no skin) and rice and you could add some vegetable like shredded zucchini.
Both of these can be used in dogs....Not the D products, however.... I have found that the winter months are the worse for these conditions because of houses closed up, heating systems running, low humidity, etc. Let me know what you think.......
It primarily occurs at night - every night, sometimes several times a night and rarely in the morning. It is so severe that it leads to vomiting and panic level shortness of breath. It is prohibiting any restful sleep and keeps her awake for hours afterword causing fatigue throught the day. There is some phlegm with the cough. She is 42, a smoker, is allergic to cats and dogs although we have had a 4 lb yorkie for 4.5 years with only mild and occasional reaction in my wife.
She was and had for about a week been drinking excessive amounts of water, when she did get sick it was after she had drank so much she threw up right after drinking but it was all water nothing else was in it.. she threw up one other time after that when she had drank water and there was bits of her dog food with it...She was only sick like that for one day..
The breath might be slightly cooler, but this is still approximately 30 degrees higher than your room temperature. Air conditioned room air is also very dry. Since your dog has been coughing up fluid from his lungs this additional moisture in his breath is obviously easier to see. Additionally, Cushing's Syndrome causes increased panting. The two or three Cushing's disease tests are not injurious or invasive to your dog, so I think that they should be performed if Cushing's is suspected.
Well give me something else to worry about aside from my own misery. Both of my dogs seem to have some kind of bug. Our Dalmatian, Doc Holliday (aka Dr. Spot or Spotacus) started off the festivities with horrible hacking episodes that leave him a shaking and drooling mess. It's not the typical doggie "reverse sneezes" that are basically harmless hiccups. Now our Dal/Lab mix, Maggie, joined in last night with sneezing fits like I've never seen in a dog and they're continuing today.
As of yesterday, my cat is coughing now too. I thought cats were not supposed to get kennel cough!! Does that open up the possibilities of what it could be? I have an 8 week old Sheltie mix on Cephadroxil that has had kennel cough for about a month. Other than coughing fits, she is completely fine. I have a ~2 yr old Cairn terrier that had kennel cough that was on doxy, that still has an occassional coughing fit.
Sorry, meant to add, obviously the vomiting and diarrhea are probably secondary symptoms, which means she is picking this infection up from something in the immediate environment. That means something in your home, your garden/backyard area, other dogs or other people that she comes into contact with, or her food or treats fed regularly. If you have changed food, try looking at other things she eats (treats) as a first priority.
We have a 9 yr old Low Chen who for the past 2 weeks has been hacking and coughing almost constantly. He did have valley fever 2 years ago and was treated successfully and his titer is negative. He coughs but doesn't cough anything up-just sounds like he is going to choke or get something out. sometimes rubbing his throat gently and calming him down will make it quit but as soon as you stop he starts again. He is in otherwise good health.

Next- Kennel Cough- This is a virus and antibiotics will do nothing.....
Something certainly isn't right, so why not take her to your vet? Dogs pick up viruses and bacterial infections just like we humans do, so it's entirely possible that she caught something since her last visit.
Like the size of straw the in the middle restricted got littler then back to size of straw?? Plus, please get on computer and read, read about steroids in dogs!!! Did the vet give you some ativan, or valium, or something to keep the dog more relaxed, not so stressed??
At times the vomit accompanies the coughing, and just yesterday she threw up the most she's done up to this point, looking like stomach acid and mucus, no food involved, without coughing. She had a fever for one or two days a couple weeks ago (weeks after the coughing began). It's a little worrisome actually, so any help would be appreciated. She has never had this problem before, no allergies that we know of, all vaccinations are up to date.
For the past 3 days she has been coughing, honking and has the sniffles. Last night we bought a vaporizer to help rid the symptoms. Is there anything else I should do? Bennadryl? Robotusin? How much is should we give her? Thanks.
As veterinarians we see a lot of similar cases each week in practice and it is likely allergies. The coughing comment is quite worrisome, though. Coughing is usually not related. Please see your veterinarian again and have him or her listen closely to his chest and take chest xrays. I hope a problem is not found, but respiratory problems are not something to wait around on.
Isn't that carried into her bedroom which takes away the argument that the pets aren't in that room? In addition I have picked her up with pet hair all over her clothing which is another indicator of what she is encountering. I have just went through another episode with her coughing, wheezing, dark circles under eyes, pale face and the inhalers and nebulizer. Any ideas!!!
Bordetella bronchiseptica, the bacterial agent responsible for canine cough, often pairs up with other viruses because when the Bb attaches itself to the cilia in the dog's nasal passages, resulting in "kennel cough", the immunn system is compromised, thus allowing the Bb to pair up with one of the more serious cough-producing agents, such as canine parainfluenza, canine adenovirus or canine reovirus.
Food allergies only account for 10 percent of allergy problems in dogs. Dogs often can not tolerate soy products, wheat, corn, beef, pork, chicken, milk, whey, eggs, fish, chemical preservatives, or artificial sugars in their food. Determining the food allergen can be time consuming. First, eliminate all the possible allergens from the diet, by using a home made diet consisting of a protein and a starch the dog has not eaten before.
She starts making a sound as if she was trying to hack up something in her throat. Then she starts gagging and the she trows up into her mouth. She does this all through out the day, she does it at night to when shes not asleep. This gets really irritating but i feel bad for her because she cant bark and we rescued her from a breeder who was going to put her down. So if someone could please help me figure out whats the matter with my pug then that would be great!
We decided to do just what you mention here. We put her in her favorite bed with her blanket, wrapped her up just a bit, and let the other doxies pay their respect. They all had a different reaction, but none were negative. It was actually very sweet the way they softly sniffed and nuzzled her. With you going from two to one, it may be a bit more difficult for Sadie as she will be only one, but I believe you can help fill her void till she feels comfortable again.
last night I had fallen asleep but woke up because of horrendous heartburn, the acid had actually come up my throat so I was coughing pretty hard. I ended up being really sick with the coughing...anyway, I went and had some toast to try to get rid of the taste and went back to bed, when I got there though I started contracting, harsher than normal bh, pretty uncomfy, but bearable...while this was happening one of my dogs sat next to me and cried until I fell asleep.
it seems that I am allergic to this house (I have never been allergic to a dog before...in fact, I grew up with 2 indoor dogs). But however, both of my parents had a grandma that had had asthma. I was supposed to go back for further testing 2x before to see if I had asthma, but I never had the money. Anyways, I said all that to say this...every day/night (doesn't seem to matter to my little body) I start hacking up a lung. Sometimes my cough is so severe that I almost get sick from it.
