Help, My Dog Is Coughing!
We have a beautiful American Cocker Spaniel named "Lulu". She's 11 years old and still very active. She's the sweetest dog ever - she's going a little deaf, has a few eye cataract problems, but what worries me about her most is her hacking cough.
She'll do 6 or 7 hacks, then she'll try to throw up, but there's nothing there - just dry coughs. She also she has a tendency to drink a lot of water. I always give her a full bowl of clean water - she'll go through a gallon each week.
She eats a quality dry kibble, only in the morning, with a little mixed in wet canned dog food. Her stool is good and hard. She seems fine to me, other than her cough.
How do I address the hacking cough? The vet stated enlarged heart, but nothing else showed on the x-ray.
