Question - dog w/exaggerated swallowing, licking, coughing etc... ?!?! dog w/exaggerated swallowing, licking, coughing etc... ?!?!

I have a 3 yr old shepherd/husky mix dog. She started this extreme exaggerated swallowing, licking, coughing like she has a hair ball stuck, last summer. Took her to the vets twice, both times, said it was from a sore throat and if it continued, they want to remove her tonsils.. on a DOG :-0

She kept me up 1/2 the night with this problem, even did the throwing up yellow foam, then lost all her dinner big time at 1 a.m. OMGosh it was a nightmare.

Anyone ever have a dog with this problem of exaggerated licking, swallowing etc........???

Oh my goodness yes!!!!!!

It was awfull when my dalmation had this problem. The cure for my dog. Change in diet. My vet said the problem was her food.

We gave her pepcid once a day and changed her food.

Turned out the food we fed her bothered her stomach and the obsesive licking (the entire carpet) was because of the upset stomach and that gagging couch was awful, I felt so bad. In the middle of the night all you could hear was that swallowing sound. You've described my dog to a tee when she had this problem. The yellow stuff too, ugh it was awful to pick up but the licking I guess helps them throw up.

Poor thing might have a really bad stomach ache due to her food every day.

Try the pepcid one a day with her meal and go out and buy a different brand of dog food and see if it helps. Shepherds have really sensitive stomachs, I know I have 2 shepherds myself.

Good luck and let me know if this helped.

This dog, Dixie is very high maint. for a 3 yr old. She is already on "special" Eukanuba food due to a metablism issue she has. I hate the thought of changing foods, trying to find the right one for her tummy as well as the metablism problem she has. BUT I hate to see her suffer with these 'bouts' of gagging and such :-(

I have never heard of giving a dog Pepcid. How do you know what dosage to use? I just may try this for her.

My dog is licking obsessive! She licks and licks until I make her stop then she gags because she licked up so much hair! She also chews the pads on her paws.
It was all due to the food I was feeding her. I switched her to nutro natural choice lamb and rice and she is much better but with her having pink skin she will always have "itchy problems". She takes a steroid and an allergy pill 3 X a day and it helps her too.
She is a lab/border collie/dalmation mix little (95 pounds) spolied sweetie!
Eukanuba is an excellent food but, it wasn't for my dog. I needed to get away from the preservitives and corn in the dog food. I like the nurto because it is natural and it has glucosamine and condroitin in it.
Science diet has a sensitive stomach formula that is supposed to be pretty good but, I don't know a whole lot about it. I'd stay away from their other formula's though, I am not a fan of them! I managed a pet store for a while and had to learn all about the foods but have been out of the "loop" for a couple of years.
Best Wishes!

I have a dog with the same exact problems. She is a shepherd, they are known for having these types of problems.
Ani, my dog, is also in Search and Rescue and is a vital member of our search team and she became so ill from all this, I tried changing her food and all the other stuff the vet recommended, I finally had to bring her to Lansing MI. to a specialist and they operated on her immediatly. Her stomach was trying to twist(bloat) but the only thing stopping the bloating was that her stomach was adhered to her liver. So the doc repaired that and had to tack her stomach down. She still has problems but I've found that Mylanta and good old Pepto bismol works best for her. Also buy one of those dog dishes that elevates her dish so she doesn't swallow air. Keep her calm after she eats and you may try wetting her dog food down with hot water. Make it soupy. Don't free food her feed her the same time if at all possible.
Good luck

My dogs go out and eat grass when they have upset tummies, the yellow stuff they hack up, is bile.
My Billy has been coughing a lot lately, as has a few dogs around here, we figured that they have tummy bugs. Billy is ok now, anyway
Hope that your vet gets to the bottom of it all, and all your doggies are better soon!
