My dog ??has a cold
Coughing, vomiting, snorting and snoring can have many causes
My dog ??coughs or coughs
Everyone has a cold, even a dog. The airways are then infected with a virus and / or a bacterium.
Kennel cough is very common, also in vaccinated animals. Just like with a cold in people, your dog gets sick because he has been in contact with other (a bit) sick dogs. He will get sick within a short time. He can continue to cough for a few more weeks.
But if your dog goes into the bushes healthily and comes out coughing or sneezing again, he may have choked and a foreign object has entered his windpipe.
Other causes of coughing in the dog are: pneumonia, trachea collapse, heart problems and tumors.
My dog ??is sneezing or has a snot nose
If your dog goes into the tall grass and comes out of it again, he may have sniffed a grass in his nose. But there are many more causes for sneezing and snorting.
Most dogs that are offered at the MCD because of sneezing or a snot nose have already had several antibiotics. The complaints went away, but after stopping the cure, they came back again.
Bacteria are almost never the cause of these complaints.
Giving (even more or other) antibiotics does not make any sense. Further research is.
My dog ??is stuffy or snores
If your dog makes a noise when breathing, it is not normal. Also snoring (in some breeds this is considered normal) can cause damage in the long term
Further research into the cause and the possibility of a treatment is recommended.
