Sneezing and coughing in dogs

Common Questions and Answers about Sneezing and coughing in dogs


Avatar f tn I had also thought some really awful stickers had gotten stuck in his throat area somewhere, but the vet said no. Husband thinks it's because since I have neuropathy in my hands and feet and thus drop my drinks and such on the floor, that the dog licking the carpet is the cause, which obviously I can do absolutely nothing about, short of putting a rubber mat on the floor all around where I sit. I was VERY interested in the vet saying he could hear congestion in his nose...
Avatar m tn Your veterinarian can try some other medications, such as Hydroxyzine, Temaril, or steroids to determine which is best for your dog, if the sneezing and coughing are due to environmental allergies. Your vet can also determine if the symptoms are caused by infections, or other causes, of course.
Avatar n tn 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.
Avatar f tn 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.
874521 tn?1424120397 Thomas, Red was referring to just BULL DOGS...he and my daughter both have and they break out under their chins and paws. Is the Benadryl the human form? avail at pharmacies?
Avatar n tn My sneezes comes in doubles, triples, quadruples, and I can be sneezing for hours.... my sneezes aren't clean sneezes...I'm draining snot like a water faucet.... no conventional medications work... I have to let it go away in its on time.... If you know anything I can do... let me know.
82861 tn?1333457511 I also gave them the veterinarian dose of benadryl today (1 mg per pound) to little effect, so that lack of reaction seems diagnostic in itself. With both dogs hacking and sneezing snot everywhere, and DH adding his allergies and asthma to the chorus, I can hardly hear myself think. Maybe the vet can give DH a shot when he's through with the dogs tomorrow?
Avatar m tn But has anyone here not thought about the possibility that people do 'fake' coughing and sneezing as a way to try to tell you or people around them something? Like, a form of non-verbal judgement? I always get the implication or vibe that people cough or sneeze to judge me. Like to non-verbally convey that "I don't like you" or "I don't like what you said or look like". I feel like this is a thing.
415109 tn?1304893782 There are SOME cough syrups you can give to dogs, but you have to be VERY careful of the ingredients and dosage, and it would be best to ask your vet which they recommend. Another possibility is reverse sneezing.. This does sound like choking/gasping for air, it is nothing to worry about and is triggered by allergies..
1761287 tn?1313828387 there are few herbs that are so I would be very cautious using this one, esp when its marketed for both cats and dogs...b/c dogs can safely use many herbs that cats cannot...I always err on the side of caution. I really hope you find away to pay for that xray and some blood tests to help your kitty and not throw your money on products that your not sure of when theres been no diagnosis...
682891 tn?1226696230 The pain in my neck is located around my shoulder blades and in my arms it hurts on the top of my fore arm and my bicep, and occasionally on the top part of my hand. It is starting to get extremely painful and I am not sure what I should do or what is causing it. ANY help would be greatly appreciated. I have done several Google searches but with no luck except people with similar problem, but few answers. Thanks in advance.
Avatar f tn my chihuhua is sneezing, coughing and has a wet chest. I can't aforrd the vet now and looking for help ? He "Monkey" has never had this before and he is nine. I had a heartattack and was in hospital 2 weeks and sick at home for a month. He was suppose to be vaccinated sept 1. He isn't vaccinated yet this year and going next week to do so. He has developed labored breathing, couching, sneezing and doesn't do it alot but never before.
Avatar n tn I was also given a asthma reliever inhaler...which I tried and does not seem to help in the slightest. In the meantime my coughing steadily got worse. I found during these sudden attacks my nose would suddenly stream at the same time..and I had to rush to the toilet so as to not have a bladder accident. All this coughing has badly affected my bladder control. Sometimes I would cough so badly I would vomit at one point I was vomiting everyday!!
326352 tn?1310997895 red, itchy, watery eyes, red, itchy skin, nasal congestion, severe repetitive sneezing, coughing, and even respiratory distress. The severity of the reaction depends upon how severe the child's immune system reacts to the proteins in the cat's saliva, urine, or dander (dead skin). The immune system just reacts to an allergen the same it would as if it were a bacteria or virus...surrounding the invading organism resulting in an immune response, i.e.
Avatar m tn in the middle way, I have crust accumulated in my nostril and sometimes I can pick and get it out (quiet a bit); and in my lower breath path or deep in my throat, I have thickened mucus and gel like tiny balls and hard to get them out. I have tried different things to reduce the mucus secreation. However none of them has been proven effective or without side effect. Lately I started to us SinusWars2. I noticed that my muscus has been getting less and my nostrils are getting clearer.
685623 tn?1283485207 As you many already know, peanuts are not served on airplanes anymore because the peanut dust would get into the recirculated air of the plane and cause reactions in passengers. This editorial says that pet dander can cause the same sort of problem and could be easily remedied by putting the pets into the cargo hold of the plane. BUT..
Avatar f tn There is no blood in her stool or urine, no coughing or sneezing, and no vomiting; also, her gums seem a normal pink. The only real symptoms are that she is very lethargic (progressively worse), and no appetite. She also seems to be drinking a normal amount of water, but usually only when one of us takes her to the bowl (at which time she drinks a lot).
387767 tn?1345875627 A dog can behave perfectly in one household, and not in another. I dont know what to tell you about the fibro and your knees. I have a ruptured disc, bulging discs, cancer, and pulmonary hypertension. I still have to walk the dogs. That doesn't change. Actually, getting out in the fresh air often helped me feel somewhat better. Hope this works out, but I have an uneasy feeling. Best of luck.
Avatar n tn The fibers cause a pricking feeling in the nose when inhaled and protracted sneezing. If one looks directly at the sun while blocking out the disc, the particles may be seen in forward scattering. This effect is suspiciously absent from the literature. The feeling also seems to come with a south wind.
973741 tn?1342346373 There is nothing wrong with a dog's nose being wet. But if she is snuffling, sneezing, coughing or breathing in a strange way it's best you check her out at the vet's. Dogs can sometimes get foreign bodies lodged in their noses, like a grass seed, etc.
Avatar f tn So i have the common cold, sneezing, runny nose, itching throat, and coughing up mucus.... My dog sleeps with me every night, n i share most of my food with her, i just wonder if she will catch my cold??
Avatar f tn Sometimes I can grab it and drag it out from the back of my throat .. thick and stringy .. and could almost tie it in a knot . Gross eh :-( Ive tried steam inhalation .. gargling .. drinking loads of water . . and still its the same . Had this problem about three years now . Is there anybody out there that help me please .
Avatar m tn As I said before, my PATM began some time after I had a strong stomach ache, at the same time, I had the feeling of a lump in my throat and a lot of mucus, and began coughing (I haven’t got them before). Cough after some time has stopped, but a lot of mucus in the throat remains. All these symptoms (cough, feeling of lump in the throat, a lot of mucus) are signs of GERD. As I read on the Internet, one of the causes of GERD is in reducing of the tone of the lower esophageal sphincter.
Avatar n tn I don't have allergies of any kind and I'm in excellent health and I can learn to live with the smell of fresh baked bread in my nostrils.. I mean it could be owrse.. still I think I should get someone to check this out especially as I read about Phantom smells being a possible side efect of brain tumors...
Avatar n tn Therefore, if you have other children in the home who go to a large day care or school, your baby will take longer to get over the coughing and coughing because of the constant germs and virus that are brought home from the older children from schools. People do not develop permanent immunity to the virus. The most commom complication of bronchiolitis is an ear infection, occuring in some 20% of infants. Bacterial pneumonia is an uncommon complication.
Avatar f tn 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... Next- Kennel Cough- This is a virus and antibiotics will do nothing.....
Avatar m tn - The dander from my body carries traces of the above chemicals, gasses and excretions. I believe the dander becomes soiled in my clothes and through the washer/dryer cycle, combines with the detergent and fabric softener, making the "washed clothes" allergenic. - I also believe that certain secretions are carried through the breath in the same way they are carried through the bloodstream. Even with immaculate hygiene and a vegan diet, patm cannot be "cured.
Avatar n tn My first thought was- what the heck is going on- I have this bad sinus infection , on meds for that for 20 days- it never goes away- was told to take celexa- (which I took at the same time as the anti-biotic)- and then started having attacks, tingling in my fingers and toes, and then I am being sent to a pyschologists? for anxiety or panic disorder.??? I really hope you get better and I did go to chiropractor ( I have not been in a few months though)...maybe I should go back for a visit.
Avatar f tn I ask because if you live in the country, or if you have a lot of plants in your yard, it's possible that he managed to inhale something and now it is stuck in his nose. Dogs have inhaled foxtails before and these can be very painful and actually need to be removed by the vet if they become stuck in the nostril. He could also have a simple case of allergies. It is September, and many of the fall plants that affect humans with allergies also affect dogs.
