• My dog has had a really dry cough for the past couple of weeks. Why is he coughing, and what should I do?

    I recommend that you take your dog into see your veterinarian as soon as possible. Coughing can be a sign of a few different things including a respiratory infection, heart condition, or an underlying medical condition.

    Your veterinarian can talk to you more about what is causing his cough after they have examined him. The treatment that he needs will vary depending on the underlying cause of his cough.
