My dog was observed to have a change of voice when we came back last night- it has become high pitched and slightly raspy. 2 days ago he was given Oradental Collagen Strips to chew on. His appetite is as good as before. He still barks at neighbors and the house cat.
Note: My mum (main food giver) and I were away for 1 week. He was left with dad but appetite was as good as before.
What could be the cause of the voice change?

Lainet, welcome to the board. My senior dogs voice changed in her old age. I'm sure it was somewhat gradual, but can't say for sure. I can't offer any suggestions for you as to why your dogs voice changed, but would suggest a vet visit if it is of concern to you. Good luck.

Welcome to pets.ca Lainet. :thumbs up
It is possible that your dog could have a piece of the dental chew stuck in his throat. Is he coughing at all? If this continues I would get him checked out by your vet. Good luck and keep us posted. :fingerscr :goodvibes:

Thanks for the replies.
Thank God his old voice came back a few days later. Could he just have suffered from a sore throat?
Anyway it's all good. :)

Thank you for coming back and letting us know how your dog is. It could have had a piece stuck in his throat. patti

If he did a lot of barking he could have made his throat sore causing laryngitis. He also could have had a piece of the dental chew stuck and managed to cough it out on his own.
Glad to hear that he is okay now. :thumbs up
