I found this forum while googling for info on a dog coughing, so thought I'd join and ask about it here.
One of our dogs started coughing on Tuesday afternoon. We didn't think much of it, just thought he was a bit over excited as we had just got home from shopping and he usually goes crazy going through the bags looking for his treats. He only coughed after jumping around for a bit. Yesterday, he was still coughing, but only after running around the yard. Today, he is still coughing after running, but has started coughing without exercise, I've been at the computer for an hour with him asleep on the lounge near me, and he's woken up 3 times to cough. Occassionaly he'll bring up a little bit a phlegm. My boyfriend thought he may have something stuck in him throat, and gave him a spoon of olive oil thinking it may help him bring it up.
We are taking him to the vet this afternoon, but thought I'd ask if anyone knows what it could be. I did think of kennel cough, but would like to see if anyone who's had a coughing dogs has ideas. I should also mention, his vaccinations aren't up to date, and his worming may be overdue. I was going to worm him today but thought I'd better see the vet first.
