2 year old staffy with a cough?

Post by Willow17 on Thu 16 Feb - 9:26

My 2 year old staffy Willow has a cough that shes had for a while. Shes not in any pain at all, its not getting her down and its only when she gets excited or when playing. I just put it down to getting a dry throat from panting but I was wondering if anyone elses dog does this? confused

Hi and welcome to the forum!

How long do you mean by 'for a while'? I'm guessing you mean over a week or two, in which case I'd pop her to the vets. There could be something going on in her throat that is best looked at. A dog should be able to pant without it causing coughing and a persistent cough isn't normal.

Hope it's sorted out quickly.

yes, I think a trip to the vets is in order.

coughing can be caused by so many things - infection, heart problems, kennel cough to name just a few. best to get it sorted out properly.

Oh, and welcome to the forum!
