Exclamation Hacking/Coughing/Choking?

In the last week or two, Beamer has been Hacking/Coughing/Choking alot. (he used to have this every do often, as many of you have probably seen in your own dogs to)

I'm not sure why he is doing this. It pretty much occurs when he is sleeping and any other random time to. What could be the cause of this? could he have injured his throat while pulling on his leash? Or playing?

anyone?

Ryan

It could be allergies or maybe kennel cough. Has he been exposed to other dogs?

Ryan could it be kennel cough? When Ry & Monte had it they were worse right when they would wake up.

My parents Maltese used to have this. Their trainer told them it could be the result of pulling on the lease while using a collar. They switched to a harness and the problem got better, but the dog had been using a collar for so long there was some permanent damage.

Leeann & Jeniffer,
Not sure it could be kennel cough, as he got his vaccine for it just a few months ago. (he does play with other dogs...)
I hope its not from pulling on the leash...

Is this smething I might want to go to the vet with?

Ryan it does not matter if they are vaccinated they can still get it. It's like getting a flue shot, it does not protect you against all strains. Both my boys are vaccinated and ended up getting it from a dog at day care. They did not get very bad so we let it run it's course and it was gone within a month, my day care was soooo great about it also they offered to come to my house on my scheduled days to take the boys for a walk.

How much does little Beamer cough? If your not comfortable or pretty worried I would take him to the vet, even just for piece of mind.

Good luck, hope he feels better soon. Keep us posted!
