Your dog may experience coughing or what can also be called hacking after running. This can simply be because of having something in the throat that has to be cleared, or it may even be something that just went “down the wrong pipe.” These are some of the common reasons why your dog may experience coughing after running.
However, as a pet owner, you should also be observant. This is because persistent coughing may sometimes be an indication of conditions such as tracheobronchitis or kennel cough. Exposure to allergens or bacteria can also cause viral infections, and this can be another cause for the coughing.
In some cases, it can also signal a much more serious issues or condition, which can be treated through medication or even vaccination.
