Common Questions and Answers about Coughing dog what causes


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 f tn In the last few weeks, my toy poddle, age 14, has had sudden dizzy spells where he becomes unbalance and will start to sway from side to side. During these spells, he tries to walk it off, but he just looks like his walking drunk. I'm really concerned because you can see him trying to shake these spells off but he can't. The spells last about 10 seconds. Right before one of this happens he usually starts coughing. I don't know if the coughing and dizzy spells are related.
Avatar m tn My 7 year old Lab is undergoing Twisted Intestine surgery right now and is having part of his bowel removed along with his small intestines. My question is "what causes this"? I feed him only the best dog food. Purina One which they changed recently and I keep saying he started getting sick after he started eating it. Please help me to understand.
Avatar m tn There are many possible causes here. Food allergies and allergies in general being my top two suspects. My Australian Cattle Dog turned out to be allergic to a high quality dog food that we'd used for years. We now feed a grain free diet of venison. No more coughing. You milage may vary here. Try switching up your dogs diets and see if it helps.

(Allow no unleased outside time and see if the signs stop for one month.) Then talk to your veterinarian about a workup for dietary intolerance, for inflammatory bowel disease and for other illnesses causing "chronic intermittent vomiting." Good luck.
4121556 tn?1350428560 My dog coughs as though he has something stuck somewhere, I cannot see anything, he eats quite well, Could it be lung worms or could it be a tumour? he often vomits.bile.He is old now, and his back legs are going, should he be put to sleep? euthenasia?
Avatar f tn Eating bones causes white dog poo. I remember watching this myself when I was a kid! We let our dog have a bone, then....well... (I was fascinated!!) Actually I am not a great fan of giving dogs bones. It does more harm than good. Even with a 'safe' bone it can cause terrible constipation. I know they eat them in the wild, but then again, they don't live so long in the wild.
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.
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 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.
1171933 tn?1263476758 How old is your Chihuahua? What did the vet say? There is a chance that your dog might have ashtma. Yes, dogs do get asthma and it's very distressful and can be dangerous if not treated immediate. There must be some type of treatment for it, but it's like breathing thru a small straw. Please rush him to the vet everytime he has an attack and there must be treatment for it, because they suffer without the ability to breath...
Avatar f tn m not sure if thats muscular or not. None of the phlem is infected, just really watery but causes alot of coughing. I was taking anti inflamitories for my back and that seemed to help the pain in the lungs. One of the doctors perscribed me codeine for the cough because he thought that this would help dry things out. Unfortunatly it didnt.
Avatar f tn She does have a heart condition but this is not the cause. She was coughing like a goose on Tues. Vet gave her Termeril P. She took that and it did reduce the coughing. But, she stopped eating on Thurs. Sat. I got up and made her a filet mignon which is her favorite. She won't eat. I took her to the vet again but my usual vet was not there and I saw the other one. This vet said she has acid reflux. He gave her a shot of Ampacillian, Cerenia and Pepcid AC.
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.
Avatar n tn Thanks for your reply! It may be the enlarged goiter I have that causes the coughing. Going to have it out in about a month, so we'll see for sure.
Avatar m tn It can continue to grow in size until it finally ruptures which spills out a vast amount of blood depending on the size of the rupture. This causes acute internal hemorrhage. The affected dog becomes acutely anemic because the dog's blood is free in the abdomen, in the case of the splenic tumor or free in the pericardium, in the case of a heart tumor, for instance, and not in blood vessels. The blood can then pour out of the mouth since it is not contained in blood vessels.
Avatar f tn This is very common and is a result of your vagus nerve being stimulated by the coughing resulting in a sudden drop in blood pressure as it temporarily causes your heart to pump less efficiently causing less blood to go to your brain. The drop in BP causes your symptom of feeling faint, it is very common and completely normal.
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 f tn 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.
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.
