Common Questions and Answers about Coughing dog not eating


Avatar n tn My dog has not been eating for couple of days and she does not seem like she wants to eat and i tried to force her to drink some milk and water and she keeps on gagging and coughing what could be causing that ?
Avatar m tn My elderly parents have 2 Japanese Chins and unfortunately we had to have one put to sleep yesterday. She had not been eating so the vet thought it was her teeth, she then had the back ones removed. She still was not eating so it was put down to tender gums with having her teeth out. The vet then did various x-rays, a barium meal and an ultrasound but still nothing showed up. She was still not eating and was vomiting what looked like water. The vet is at a loss as to what caused this.
Avatar n tn I have an Italian Greyhound. She is not eating very well in the morning, and night she sometimes turns her nose up at the food but will come back to eat it. I give her Royal Kanie for dry food and Natures receipe easy to digest wet food. No other systems. Going to bathroom okay, nothing in her stool.
Avatar f tn I have noticed my 14 year old dog has not touched his food for two days. I also noticed that he is really struggling when he poops. His poops are not normal, they have been powdery. They come out normal then they tun into powder. We gave him some pork rib bones 3 days ago which in the past have never bothered him. He was just recently diagnosed with arthritis and is on DASUQUIN ONE PILL ONCE A DAY. He has been taking these since March and has been feeling much better.
Avatar f tn He seems to be loosing his balance sometimes but not falling over. He is an older dog. He had a little diarhhea. My mom suggested maybe he is lonely because his father just died but I don't think so because that was a few months ago and I have taken care of him since then and he was fine. I called his owners and the dad said to try giving him a different flavor of his food but I have already tried two flavors.
Avatar n tn Organ meats tend to have a higher fat content than muscle, and are also high in phosphorus content. Serving up any unusual food, particularly in an older dog, can result in a simple upset tummy with vomiting and diarrhea or more serious conditions. For example, if your senior dog has a kidney problem, the excess phosphorus in the organs might have just tipped him over the edge into full blown kidney failure.

Avatar f tn She sleeps most of the night with out coughing. It sounds like kennel cough but I am pretty sure it is not! 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 n tn my dog has stopped eating parts of his regular food and leaves it all over the floor so he can pick out the pieces that he likes. He has always eaten the same food. he keeps trying to eat poop and likes to get into the bathroom garbage and eats the used tissues and feminine products. And the last time he got the garbage he had diarriha really bad. Stool is still loose but has some form.
Avatar n tn Last but not least- your dog is to old to be vaccinated. His immune system will not respond to the vaccine and it could cause serious problems. This applies to any older and/or sick animal. Whatever the cause, (ie., allergy, infection, cardiac or toxins) if you follow these steps the cough should go away in a couple of weeks or less. God bless your and your pug! Take care and lets us know how things are going!!
Avatar n tn i just got my dog back from my ex gf and i just noticed that she is not eating.
Avatar m tn i have a dog under a vets care - he is on vacation. she has cancer - just diagnoced, 3-4 weeks ago, tumor on her upper right leg. she was on Deramaxx for pain and Mirtazapine for appetite, but for the last 2 days - is NOT eating anything, and can't keep anything we force down... She's lost appetite since she was put out for her exray, 3 weeks ago, but the last two days - she's not eaten or drank anything. SHe is so weak, she can't even walk this morning.
Avatar m tn She showed improvement while on the medication, but the symptoms returned as soon as the course of medication ended. Eating Diamond dog food naturals lamb and rice formula. She had been on this type of dog food all of her life. -Month 2 – The coughing got a little more violent still, and she produced a white foamy substance with it - was prescribed more antibiotics and a little more strength of steroids. She had a series of x-rays which showed some mucus in lungs, but no signs of pneumonia.
898333 tn?1241773108 My male dog is not eating and has lost weight has also been throwing up, My female dog is in season could this having anything to do with him not eating. His behaviour is also different very timmered and scared.
Avatar f tn Has anyone here had their dog go through heartworm treatment before? My husky is on day 5 from getting his HW treatment (immeticide?) We're not suppose to have him move around too much because the decomposing worms may cause an embolism. He's coughing a a hacking cough today and not eating too much. I'm wondering what to expect next.... I hear the coughing may continue for 2 weeks before he's almost in the clear.
Avatar n tn My dog has been coughing every 2-3 hours as if hes trying to loosen something in his throat.Will it pass?Should I take him to the Vet?
Avatar f tn Because my dog interacts with other dogs a lot, when he developed a "cough" I immediately took him to the vet. He had no fever, is eating and drinking normally and his activity level is normal - he doesn't at all act like a sick dog. I have kept him away from other dogs to avoid getting them sick. The vet diagnosed him with kennel cough and put him on Doxycycline 100 mg - he takes 1 1/2 pills twice a day. He started them on Tuesday.He has also had a Bordetella vaccine.
1953276 tn?1324791878 I really doubt that he has some GI blockage, Coz when I feed him pedigree or Drools, he eats one or two and starts coughing and gives up eating. Then we used to feed from our hands. Still his eating is not satisfactory. He is very fond of Rusk (dry & stiff bread). He is a lovely one and I want to bring him up. I am 52 years old and so far not interested in pets. Especially dogs. And after I had my puppy "KITTU', I love him more or equal than my kids.
Avatar n tn We had a health dog one day and the next coughing and hacking. His cough sounds dry like a honking goose. Took to vet he said could be kennel cough and put him on doxycycline but also said he heard a heart like murmur. The vet did say that the heart could have sounded like that cause of the dog not feeling well if it was kennel cough and/or being anxious. How did I have a vibrant healthy eating dog one day and a sick one the next. His appetite seems still to be ok.
2087488 tn?1332582128 For a dog not to want to eat, and to be losing weight, then it's my feeling she DOES have a medical condition. The sooner you find out what's wrong with her the better. She needs to see the vet as soon as you can take her. I would take her Monday. A healthy dog who is exercised normally, will be hungry for food, and will eat. OK there are some exceptions....for instance, a dog who has been brought up to eat only human food all its life, might turn up its nose at kibble.
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 n tn I'm desperate for help! Here's the situation: My dog was vomiting about 1 month ago and lethargic. I took him to the emergency vet clinic and they did an Xray, which was inconclusive. They sent me to a specialist center to have an ultrasound done. The specialist looked at him and felt that the Xray was inconclusive due to bad technique and recommended leaving him overnight for observation.
Avatar n tn NutriCal is an EXTREMELY high calorie food supplement that comes in a squeeze tube that you give to dogs and cats that are not eating normally, or even not eating at all. It helps them to maintain their body weight and energy until they get over whatever it is they have. It must taste really good to them, because much of the time they will readily lick it right out of the tube.
