sometimes it only happens right after they first get up. if it's once every few days or so, I wouldn't worry. but if it's on a regular basis, especially after getting up after rest; it's probably kc. ask your mom how he was there....has he been exposed to other dogs, etc.
I second Lindsay. Toby only hacks maybe 1 or 2 times a day. I think I will wait until DH gets home tomorrow to see what he thinks. He isn't doing it that often right now. I may call the vet tomorrow. He was in a couple of weeks ago and he had a runny nose and was sneezing, they said it was a cold. It did go away after a couple of days. I need a medical book for Puppies/Dogs.
Sure will!!! I've actually noticed the hiccups more than the coughs in the morning so I have hope for him. But I will check with the vet. Right now he's wiped out laying beside me in his sleep and "barking" in his sleep.
