Common Questions and Answers about Coughing in dogs after drinking water


Avatar n tn I experience heavy coughing when drinking water, usually ice water. After a cold this past winter I had a post-viral cough lasting about 3 weeks. That's when I first noticed cold water causing me to feel a sharp tickle in my throat and have severe coughing. My symptoms eventually got better, but I still was affected by water, but not as severely. I caught another cold this summer, with cough being one of the symptoms.
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 n tn One of the things my vet mentioned when my chi started coughing for a few seconds was to make sure the water/food dishes were high enough they did not have to bend down to eat. That has really helped. I will say she gave the one chi a steroid shot....that helped as well. It has worn off and the dishes have continued to her from coughing as much. Just a thought!
Avatar f tn A dry cough can be caused from living in conditions that are too dry. Are you drinking lots of water, dehydration can also promote coughing and other problems? If you live in a city it could be air pollutants irritating your lungs. It could even be your bed causing you problems.
Avatar f tn When I feel the tickle starting I try everything I can to stop it such as clearing my throat, coughing, drinking lots of water and so on but nothing stops it. It seems that only after having a very embarrassing coughing fit where I sometimes strain to breathe followed by a bout of sneezes is the the only thing to stop the tickle.
Avatar f tn old female chihuahua started vomiting up a thick white mucus n then a little later a greenish liquid. she has not been in a kennel or around other dogs except for our other 3 chis. which seem to be fine. should i take her to the vet? very worried..
Avatar f tn I have a chihuahua/rat terrier mix (15 mos old) and my daughter just recently go a 5 mos old chihauah. My terrier does this all the time too after drinking and when she's running around outside in the grass. It's worse if the water she's drinking is really cold. When she was a baby, she would just start shaking and I thought how strange. But then I noticed my daughter's chihuahua pup does the same thing.
Avatar n tn Cannot avoid coughing up sputum after drinking anything hot/cold. Used a prescription spray nightly for a year but with no change. Should I seek a Scan of the Lung/throat?
Avatar n tn i had a couple of days without giving my dogs water and one of them was drinking water really fast and then she puked it a little bit and i dont think she has parvo because she was eating

7746659 tn?1393919637 I do through in some water about 1/4 cup when I blend the ingrients the water from the cooked chicken but he is not drinking a lot of water elswhere he maybe takes a sip after meal but maybe one or 2 sips but that's it. He also urienens after every meal. He is also wheezing a lot tonite. And he has some red spots around his mouth I don't know if he is allergic to the bland dieet. I'm now feeding 3T every 3 hours instead of 2T every 2hours. To see how much his tummy can handle.
Avatar f tn So my puppy had parvo about three to four weeks ago, he stayed with them for about four days to get treated. He came home & was back to his joyful playfull self. About a week & a half later he developed kennel cough passing it on to our other three dogs. The vet gave us oral antibiotics to give to the dogs for the coughing, they all never stopped eating & are all playfull and happy as tgey usually are except my puppy.
Avatar f tn However, fluids help a CKF dog excrete toxins trapped in the body, so good hydration is crucial for these dogs. In time, you will probably need to discuss fluid therapy with your vet, which involves giving Maggie fluids intravenously or subcutaneously. Your vet can help you achieve this at home (which is better for Maggie and cheaper for you), so it's worth talking about it at your next vet appointment.
Avatar m tn He has had about five seizures in his lifetime, and the last four occurred about three or four months apart. After those seizures, which lasted all of five minutes, he would snap right back to normal. But after his last seizure, which occurred on Saturday.....different story. That morning, he woke up very lethargic acting, and slept all throughout the day, not eating anything or wanting to drink anything. Then in the early evening, he had a major seizure.
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.
Avatar n tn Is there a natural basic or water pill therapy? dog has chf...and coughing and hacking g..fluid in chest and abdomen cannot do without some kind of diuretic...please let me know if there is a natural basic or water treatment for fluid..
Avatar n tn I have been putting vasoline on my lips and drinking lots of fluid...mostly water. But some iced tea, hot tea and ginger ale. No coffee and no alcohol. Not sure what else to do to start talking normal again. Any suggestions or ideas would be very much appreciated!!
Avatar m tn My dog is now her usual happy self, she is eating, urinating, drinking water and there is absolutely no blood in her urine. I probably did not collect all of the stones because I had no idea they were there until I picked up the last poop pad there I saw them. My little ShihTzu is five years old and Pedialyte will be on hand in my pantry at all times. After the stones are evaluated I will ask the vet for instructions on making my own meals for my pet.
Avatar f tn I then rinsed the bottle out with water a few times and continued drinking out of it for a week. I later found out see had an ulcer that was bleeding earlier in the day. I also had a cut in my mouth from biting my cheek the day before, it was not bleeding at the time. We were in jail, if you are wondering why i drank out of the bottle for a week, I didn't have a cup. What are my chances? Would the blood still be detected in her saliva.
523227 tn?1212198147 She has also within the past few days developed a cough, where she will cough about 6 times in a row and then a few minutes later it repeats itself and this goes on for abour 20 minutes at a time. She seems to be drinking less water than before, (she use to drink a lot of water, like every 20 minutes or so and was always going to the bathroom).
Avatar f tn All of the reading I have done states that dogs with kidney disease drink excessively. Does this sound excessive, or normal? In my opinion excessive drinking would be drinking every hour and the water bowl always being empty, which is not the case with Boomer. I have read that the normal amount for a dog to drink is 1 ounce per pound, so since he is 70 pounds and drinks about 70 ounces, he is drinking a normal amount according to that resource.
Avatar m tn She now began to throw up and regurgitate after eating and drinking. Sometimes this happens directly after she ingests food or water, and other times it may happen 30 minutes to an hour afterward. Cleaned any dust around the house, etc. Local vet referred us to Oklahoma State Vet Clinic. -Month 6 – OSU Vet clinic. Her examinations showed no heartworm, no collapse trachea, no tumors, etc. She went through a series of x-rays, ultrasounds and a fluoroscopy.
Avatar n tn Hi, your tickle in the throat sounds just like mine and yes sometimes after taking in a breath, I would go into a coughing fit and some time end up with a sneeze or two. Does spicy food, smoke or alcohol also set you off??
Avatar f tn Vets will not put the dog on meds till they have all the symptoms and had them for alittle while - such as my dog was drinking 10 bowls of water a day - panting - and then always wanting to eat!!!!! Finally all this got to a certain point and the vet just said before Christmas she needed to meds -(plus she did bloodwork urine test and an ultrasound) Do you do need to find a vets who has worked with other dogs with Cushings and make sure they are updated!!
Avatar n tn Right now, her lungs sound clear and she is not coughing. We have an appointment next week with a veterinary cardiologist, but I'm frantic with worry now. Is there any hope for a longer life or is this little puppy going to die before she's 2 years old? How long can medication prolong her life? How long might her life be without medication?
Avatar m tn She has also started coughing up water/phlegm immediately after drinking. She has always coughed after drinking water(never with anything coming up) but now she is regularly vomiting (water and phlegm-clear) after drinking. Any ideas would be appreciated.
Avatar f tn 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... Next- Kennel Cough- This is a virus and antibiotics will do nothing.....
