MY DOG OFTEN COUGHS INSISTENTLY AND HAS TROUBLE BREATHING. WHAT SHOULD I DO?

Cough can be caused by an irritation in the airway, following an infection or inflammation (tonsillitis, bronchitis, pneumonia), neoplasias, cardiopathies, tracheal collapse, contusion caused by trauma, tight collar, internal parasites, inhalation of a foreign body. Cough can also be caused by irritating substances in the air. A dry, persistent cough can sensibly damage the respiratory tract's coating, making the cough worse or chronic. On the other hand, a thicker cough can help expel mucous, accelerating the recovery process. In both cases, if your dog has a serious cough or coughs persistently, you should take them to the vet. These are some of the main reasons a dog may cough: infection of the respiratory tract (bacterial, viral or mycotic); inflammation of the respiratory tract coating (tonsillitis, bronchitis); pneumonia; neoplasia; congestive heart failure; trauma; excessive pressure on the neck caused by, for example, a tight collar; inhalation or ingestion of a foreign body; irritating substances in the air (dust, perfume, aggressive chemical detergents, cigarette or cigar smoke, aerosol spray, home fragrance diffusers, dust in carpets and pesticides).
