1380814 tn?1285965586 About a month ago my dog was throwing up stomach bile like once or twice a week, then it stopped for a while. I tried to get my mom to take her to the vet but she didn't think it was anything to worry about. Lately she's been puking up nothing, like she dry-heaves and makes a coughing noise as she does it. But she's still her normal-self, hyper and energetic. She vomited today and there was blood in it, even though it was barely noticeable. Is this serious?
Avatar f tn My tiny four pound Maltese/Poodle cross has been coughing and I was wondering if someone has any ideas. He is about 8 1/2 and has had issues with his behavoir. He won't let us have him groomed without him trying to bite us or get his nails trimmed, so every four months or so we have to have him knocked out to have this done. I wasn't sure if this was some of his problem from the stuff they give him or what, but he does it alot especially at night.

Avatar m tn While it seemed to improve his blood sugar(I tested his blood), he had periods of excitement and heavy panting for hours. I was concerned about heart attack and I cut his dosage to 5mg three times a day, then 2. After a month of so, he started to develop a severe cough. Dry, but with almost every breath. This continues today, after 4 months. Out of desperation, I cut medicines out completely after dropping the dosage slowly for a week.
694466 tn?1227677802 Was your dog vaccinated for kennel cough within the last six months? Next question: When was your dog's last heartworm test? This blood test should be run annually on all dogs. Is your dog on heartworm preventive? When was the last dose that you gave? It is not possible that she contracted heartworms from the kennel. If your pet has not been on heartworm preventive, it would be a good idea to take her to the veterinarian for a blood test. Is she sneezing or coughing?

Avatar m tn My 5 year old miniature schnauzer is 5 years old. She has started coughing and is becoming more frequent. It is almost a panting cough? She also has a bad odor. Which has been going on for a month or two.(odor). I have listened to her chest with a stethescope and she is breathing fast and it sounds thick and dry. I thoguht it was maybe just a case of dust because we mulched leaves (oak and pecan) and we didn't have a bag on the mower and it got pretty dusty.
996946 tn?1503249112 I posted on here awhile back about my dog, Barney, He'd gone through a bout of heartworms a few yrs back. Now he is having repercussions from it. He was put on VetMedin, Enalapril, Lassix and Diltiazem. My husband thought he seemed worse lately with coughing constantly, so he stopped the meds for a few days. Now Barney isn't coughing but seems a little unstable on his feet....he's 11 1/2 yrs old. Does anyone have any experience dealing with this?
3181540 tn?1344550924 My dog is coughing a lot, sometimes it wakes him up too, but mostly he sleeps well. He eats normally, even more than usually. He's 2,5 years old and was just recently in a pet hotel, in contact with a lot of dogs. It might be kennel cough, but I'm not sure. What should I do?
Avatar n tn Other common problems associated with these symptoms include Kennel Cough (has your dog been vaccinated against this?) or roundworm infection (has your dog been wormed within the last few months or at all in the last year?). Other conditions associated with these symptoms - if they are occurring frequently - include congestive heart failure, bronchitis or congenital defects (abnormalities from birth).
231441 tn?1333892766 His liver and cardiac enzymes were high, CBC low, creatinine high, BUN normal, WBC high, and dehydrated. They had a very hard time getting blood and his blood was dark (low oxygen). They gave him an antibiotic for whatever infection, oral rehydration salts, an antihistamine to take at night to see if it would help with the coughing, he's also been put on a special diet. He's also to wear a jacket when he sleeps in the a/c room to keep him warm.
785188 tn?1279928405 It sounds like your vet has your dog on all the "correct" heart medications. The addition of pimobendan should help. Depending on the severity, a heart ultrasound is definitely warranted, and twice a year x-rays of the chest and kidney tests should be done too (more frequently if there is a problem).
Avatar n tn My 12 yr. old pug has been coughing for 3 months. I have been to two different vets and together they have ruled out collapsed trachea, kennel cough, pneumonia and heart disease. He has been on several different antibiotics and steriods. He is still eating as usual and the coughing seems to be worse at night. They are not productive coughs just dry hacking coughs. I am running out of ideas and am desperate for answers.
1756475 tn?1330538713 I have a 12yr old yellow lab and over the last few months she got a really bad cough. the vet said it was not the worse that he has seen but he said there wasnt' anything we could do about it. She's 12 and before the cough you wouldn't even know how old she was. Over the last 2 days she has suddenly lost the ability to control her bladder and if its not that she is puking everywhere. She's been coughing and passing gas for a while but now it's not just gas.
Avatar f tn She is an inside dog and we have a fenced in yard. She is only around our other dog who has no coughing issues at all. Is it possible that my Pug has allergies with all the pollen floating around in the air. We live in the woods in North Carolina.
Avatar m tn Dear Pug Dad, On about Page 4 is a post entitled, "My dog has been coughing for..." and it's an old post. HIS dog, it turns out, did eat some burrs that got caught in his fur... and MY dog has been coughing and he also ate some burrs. Since it was an old post, he did not come back about it.
1171933 tn?1263476758 My Chihuahua has severe bouts of Coughing, Wheezing, Choking, & Breathing problems during the night. It seems to be a little bit better in the daytime. I've had him to Vet's, but after spending $1,000 + he has not changed. Does anyone have any idea what the problem may be?
Avatar n tn hi please help. my dog started out coughing. now she is having a hard time breathing. she coughed up blood three times this week. the vet doesn't know whats is wrong with her.
Avatar f tn My male chow dog was 4 maybe 5 years old and died this morning . He was coughing up blood and peeing blood and was weak and breathing heavy and fast . But he didnt start this until recently and it was too late to do anything .How did my dog die ?
Avatar f tn My dog is constantly licking his paws and body. Every time he does this he hacks and coughs like he has a hairball in his throat. He has recurring skin problems that present as scabby, slightly smelly places on his back, left side, stomach and chest. I have combed/brushed these areas and hair always comes out with the scab. I give him Brewers Yeast w/garlic every day in his food. He gets glucosamine (sp) twice a day.
Avatar f tn Any updates you have on your dog and what has helped? I feel so sad for my poor old dog coughing like this.
Avatar m tn As for the heart murmur, the treatment depends on exactly what type of heart defect is causing the murmur. Since your vet predicted that the dog would start coughing, and the dog has in fact started coughing, I take it that it is not a benign murmur. In my nonprofessional opinion, most likely the murmur is due to valve disease, and the cough is a symptom of congestive heart failure.
