My male pug is about 5 years old and we just got him a few months ago. Everything was fine for a while….but these past few weeks, he’s been gagging acting like he wants to throw up with a cough. He actually hasn’t done it in the past 3 days. How do dogs get kennel cough? What is it? My mom said that he would have to be incontact with another dog to get kennel. He was with another female pug outside in a fenced yard before we got him. So…I’m on an extremely tight money situation, and so are my parents. I don’t know if my dog is sick, and if he’s not I wont have to take him to the vet. I really don’t know what to do. He also has little bumps on his nose. They are the same color of his nose (black) but he licks his nose a lot and I’m not sure if it’s just raw from him licking it so much. They’re above his nostrils in a horizontal line…right where his tongue stops when he licks. Do I need to take him to the vet? I only have about .
