    My staffy had the same thing when she was only a few months old, we took her to the vet & they were unsure what is was, thinking maybe kennel cough, so put her on antibiotics which didn't do much so then they put her on stronger antibiotics but again it didn't do too much so they did put a tube in her throat to her lungs & found quite a bit of fluid in her lungs & said it may have been pneumonia, they tested the fluid & said it can be all different kinds of things but we found that once they had taken out the fluid her coughing had stopped & got a lot better. A month or so after she started coughing again & they put her on antibiotics again & that seemed to stop it getting worse.
    Some people say it can be reverse sneezing and some saying that the way they eat is so fast & they don't really come up for air that the food may be lodged too.
    Don't know if this is any help as we didn't really find out exactly what was wrong with our staffy.

    Sounds like kennel cough. Has she been near any other dogs lately??

    Is she eating normally?

    Is she drinking normally?

    Yes I am new to the forum.....hello (don't know how to put in a wave)

    I found that my staffy was coughing so hard that white foamy stuff was coming up too. I don't know what to recommend apart from going to the vets, it is hard as they are so expensive, the amount of times we had to take Blue was a joke.

    Maybe you could remove your dog's collar and use a harness if you need to restrain her, encourage her to drink plenty of water and remember she may have a sore throat so soft food usually goes down well. Limit exercise and don't smoke near her. Maybe do that & see is she improves

    You may need to use a cough suppressant if your dog cannot stop coughing. Why don't you call your vet about the ingredients in cough syrups. There are some over the counter medications which will work fine, but you need to know which ingredient to look for and adjust the dosage carefully, this way I guess you can avoid actually going to the vet.
