  • There are several different bugs that can cause the disease, including both bacteria and viruses.
  • If, however, the bacteria Bordetella bronchiseptica is the culprit, the cough may go on for 6+ weeks, keep everyone in the house awake, and need specific antibiotics to shift it.
  • The most common report is the suspicion that the dog has something stuck in its throat – it coughs and coughs, getting louder and louder until it makes a retching sound, swallows, and goes quiet.
