Default I don't think this is kennel cough...

One of the dogs in my daycare wheezes every once in a while,
maybe 3 times in an 8 hour period. It's almost like she can't
catch her breath.

It's not a gagging cough like kennel cough. I'm going to
recommend that the owner see the vet, but meanwhile I wanted to
get a few opinions.

asthma? are there any identifiable triggers, like hard play? how old
is she? it's possible for heart conditions to cause wheezing and
coughing.

I heard it happen after all sorts of play situations, but also
after she's woken up from a sleep. Her age is unknown exactly,
but is probably about 4 years. There's a little bit of nasal
discharge.

Is she on heartworm medications?


Probably not - there's no heartworm in Alberta and very few dogs
I know take the medication.

still could be heart problems. Especially if she's a
Cavalier Spaniel (you didnt mention breed)


It's not the CKCS, it's a medium-sized mixed breed.

Or it could be the new Doggy flu
Canine Flu has a very high infection rate.


That may be possible, but I haven't heard of it moving to this
area yet. I put a temperature strip on her belly - not very
accurate, but it showed normal. We'll see what her vet says.

huh. is the discharge clear?

the two main things that come to my mind are still allergies/asthma or a
heart condition. when you fine out what it is, i'd be curious to know.

it *could* still be some sort of respiratory infection, but clear
discharge usually means it's not. that's (hopefully) good news for the
rest of the dogs she's been in contact with, at least.

Will do.


thanks! hopefully, it's not anything serious.

Might it be "reverse-sneezing"?

No, *that* I've heard plenty.

That was definitely a concern.
