Maltese Dog Gagging – Kennel Cough? Reverse Sneeze?

Our little guy Dexter, a 4 month old Toy Maltese has been acting up lately. For the past 2 days he’s been getting into these sequences of a snoring like sound to gagging. Happens intermittently…. from doing some research, seems like it can be a reverse sneeze or from what the vet said over the phone, a kennel cough which she advised us to turn off the A/C. We’re taking him to the vet tomorrow. Any suggestions? Please help!

Dog Coughing

My dog Ace was recently Diagnosed with Tracheal Collapse. A supposed common disease in small breed dogs. A couple of years ago she was diagnosed with a pretty significant heart murmur called myxomatous valve degeneration. Meaning the valves become insufficient in preventing the back flow of blood between the chambers of the heart. Her biggest problem at the moment is the Tracheal collapse. Treatment for her at the moment is being done medically, in other words with lots of medications. The vets will try to reduce the amount of coughing. This is a very very serious disease and should not be taken lightly by a pet owner. If you dog sounds like her, that honking goose like noise please take her to the vet. Surgery for Ace is out of the question she is too old and it is too expensive for common folk. When she has a bout of coughing and trouble getting in air, I rub and massage her to calm her down. You will find items that will trigger the coughing such as, eating or drinking, getting excited, exercise and at times when they wake up from sleeping they will do it. Ace does it all the time when she gets up. Her case is pretty serious. I am doing this video for her, a diary of sorts to try to help other people that love their pets and just need an answer. And Tracheal collapse can also mimic the sound of Kennel cough, so be advised. Really a vet needs an Xray to tell for sure. The information I give you will be what I have been given from a Veterinarian. So I am not making it up

Meet Sheba a Australian Cattle Dog currently available for adoption at Petango.com! 4/8/2011 3:22:11

LHS Resident Since: 2/07/11 Adoption Price: 0.00 Estimated Adult Weight: 45-55 pounds Sheba was part of a litter born here at LHS. She’s a fun, outgoing puppy who will be a great companion for children and other pets. She isn’t housebroken or leash-trained yet, so her new family needs to be aware that they are starting from scratch with this little girl! She’ll be an energetic, intelligent dog so her new family needs to be able to give her plenty of exercise and keep her mentally stimulated so she doesn’t become bored and destructive at home. All puppies need proper socialization and firm boundaries from their new families in order for them to grow into friendly, well-balanced family pets. If you are thinking about adopting a puppy, but have a busy lifestyle without a lot of “down time” please consider adopting a mature pet instead. Sheba is up-to-date on her distemper and kennel cough vaccines. Her distemper vaccine needs to be boostered every three to four weeks until she is over four months of age to ensure immunity. She has been given monthly heartworm prevention while under our care. Her new owner will be responsible for continuing her monthly heartworm prevention and making sure her vaccines and heartworm test are updated by a veterinarian every year.

Meet Arnie a Chihuahua, Short Coat currently available for adoption at Petango.com! 9/30/2010 5:33:1

Arnie is a really sweet guy who knows sit and takes treats nicely. This dog is being treated for a mild case of kennel cough, which is easily treated with antibiotics but is highly contagious to other dogs. This dog is available for adoption only to people who do NOT have other dogs at home. An exception might be made if all resident dogs are current on their bordetella/adenovirus vaccinations and if adopters have spoken to their veterinarians about potential risks to their dogs. Adopters should be aware that even if their dogs are current on vaccinations there is still a chance their dogs could contract a form of kennel cough.

LHS Resident Since: 3/10/11 Adoption Price: 0.00 Estimated Adult Weight: 55-65 pounds Comet was found as a stray right here in Adrian.

Kennel Cough video

Video of Harry – a Yorkshire Terrier with Kennel Cough

I have a rescue dog from a shelter that apparently had kennel cough, no symtoms…but must be a carrier. Two of my dogs got sick and recieved meds from our vet..but the vet didnt say anything about giving meds to the carrier. She is suppose to get spayed on the 15th…is that possible ? or should i cancel the appt and let them know she is a carrier of kennel cough ?

Labrador Retreiver with Kennel Cough

Turns out even if your dog is vaccinated, they can still get kennel cough, it’s just a lesser form. Made this video to show the vet, because we couldn’t get him to cough at the vet.

Is it Kennel cough or can it something be else?

My dog ate a stick yesterday and he has been wheezing on and off like something is caught in his throat. I saw videos of what kennel cough sounds like, and he kinda sounds like that. Only it also sounds like hes trying to spit something up. Is that associated with kennel cough? And why isn’t my other dog doing the same thing. They are the same age and from the same litter. Both get their immunizations at the same time. Both are around the same dogs too. Someone told me to put on a glove and stick my hand down his throat. Don’t sound like a good idea. The vet will be open tomorrow. Please give me any idea on Wat to do till then.

Why You Should Adopt or Rescue a Shelter Animal.

***UPDATE, 9/8/2011****** So, the girls ended up being sick for far more than one week. It took about 4 weeks for them to get totally past the kennel cough. Soon after that we began the heartworm treatment as they were both heartworm positive. They finished the last treatment in early August. Between April and August, their lives completely sucked. They were crate ridden as they had to rest to get past the heartworm treatment. It is a very scary time as they are very vulnerable to the treatment. In August, the fun began. They finally began to play with the others, and now are enjoying life. Macy, the mom just got spayed yesterday as we had to wait for her to surpass the heartworm treatment. They attempted to spay her back in March, but her heartrate started crashing, so they aborted the surgery. Macy also has mammary tumors, so those were removed as well yesterday. Now we wait one week for the biopsy results. Praying for good news. And most of all? I am so glad that these babies are at home with me and the rest of my gang. The smiles on their faces, and the pure joy of them enjoying toys and play time with their fellow furry siblings is priceless. ADOPT. Don’t shop! ************************************* Before you add a new pet to your life, I would like to ask you to consider adopting a shelter or rescued animal. I have. Numerous times. And I have never regretted it. Ever. You won’t either. This video is about my recent experience with rescuing two dogs that were going

I have three dogs, of which, none of them have ever been in a situation like a kennel within the last 2 or 3 years. For some reason, each of my dogs have a hacking cough every once in a while and it seems like they have flem stuck in their throat. They hack for a while and then stop. They probably do this at least once every other day or so. I thought it might be kennel cough, but this has been going on for at least the last six months to a year even. And I was under the impression that kennel cough doesn’t last long at all. Does anyone have any idea what this might be?
