Why is my dog coughing?

Posted by Ally Cohen on

Coughing can be a symptom of many diseases, and you have to determine what the underlying cause is in order to effectively treat the disease.

Causes of coughing in dogs include infectious diseases, such as the very-common contagious disease known as “kennel cough”, heart disease, parasites like heartworms and lungworms, collapsing trachea (very common in small and toy breeds), and cancer. X-rays are a good start to figuring out why a dog is coughing since different diseases produce different patterns.
