    Sounds like kennel cough. Is she in contact with other dogs?
    My lab does the same things with her toys especially if they
    have squeakers in them. Then she pulls all the stuffing out of the toy and leaves it all over the place. She probably needs to be seen by the vet and put on antibiotics.

    A vet will know for sure so take her to one asap. It could be something as simple as a irritated throat or something more serious and only after testing will a vet be able to tell you for sure. Sometimes a dog will swallow something that scratches their throat and irritates it, hence the hacking sound. Just so you know, rubber toys such as Nylabones can be played with roughly and small rice-sized pieces will pass through your dog’s digestive system with no harm. Perhaps you need better toys, such as Tuffies or Kong Toys. Check http://www.westcoastpetsupply.com for tough, long lasting dog toys. Just remember that when in doubt get your dog to a vet.

    You may want to see a vet she could have something stuck in her throat.

    It sounds like kennel cough. If your dog is particularly susceptible to it and is exposed to other dogs often (i.e., being groomed or boarded), you may want to consider getting her vaccinated for it every six months. Bordatella can become pneumonia, so it’s important that she see a vet.

    Could very well be kennel cough again. I suggest you have her examined to make sure on way or the other. If she is prone to chewing and eating non-food items that may be a problem also.
    Get her examined and discuss the options.
    Hope this helps
    Good luck

    It’s Kennel Cough. It usually passes in about three weeks on its own. If she seems worse, go get some more Clavimox.
