Dog occasionally coughs and gags - Answered by Dr. Van Lienden

Hi - my 8 year old husky hound cross has always had an occasional cough. I have mentioned this to the vet a few times. Once the vet actually squeezed her throat and made her cough and asked me if that's what I hear - which it was. She didn't seem to be to concerned about it. Said sometimes something shrinks or gets harder in the throat as they get older - can't remember if it was the vocal chords or what??? The last time I was there I asked again - not too much concern.

I am considering going back again - she still coughs occasionally but sometimes gags like there is something caught in her throat. She's been doing it tonight as we sit and watch tv.

I was just wondering if anyone else has experience with this problem?
