Comments on: Is it Kennel cough or can it something be else? Tue, 10 Dec 2019 15:47:13 +0000 hourly 1 By: A Wed, 14 Sep 2011 06:59:53 +0000 Kennel cough is just that, a cough. It’s not really a wheezing sound. Whatever you listened to online could have already been progressing into pneumonia. I think you’re dog probably swallowed part of the stick or a piece of bark when down his throat.
Do not stick your hand down his throat. Take him to a vet and let the vet look down there first (they know what they’re looking at and they’re better equipped to recognize what different coughs/sounds could be from.
How old is this dog? Coughing can be a sign of a heart condition (which may explain why his sibling isn’t coughing if you’re suspecting kennel cough).
Best bet is to be safe than sorry and take him to the vet.
