QUESTION:

About 2 weeks ago my dog started sounding hoarse when he barks. Hes still very active, eating fine and shows no other symptoms but Im worried. how long should I wait to see a vet and what can it be?

ANSWER
:

Dear Ruth,

Difficult to assess the severity of this and it may well be nothing at all. However such symptoms are compatible with kennel cough / infectious tracheitis.

I recommend that you seek veterinary attention now and get your dog treated asap. In case that is unnecessary, you will spend the £25 consultation fee for nothing. In case your dog suffers from a throat infection, early treatment will save you a lot of cash and trouble.

I hope this helps,

Best wishes,

Julien
