My dog started sounding hoarse

Posted Jun 12 2009 4:27pm

pet’s breed: Mini dachshund
pet’s age: 3 yrs old
pet’s sex: male
previous treatment:

all shots are current, and no health problems


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?


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,
