My dog has laryngitis.

Not kennel cough, laryngitis. I didn't even know this was something dogs could get.

He's had a hoarse, dry cough for about a week. His bark sounds different, which really freaked me out. So I took him in to the vet this morning, and she said its laryngitis. Kind of weird, since he's not really a barker and most of the time it comes from too much barking. He's getting a 2 week course of antibiotics.

If it doesn't resolve, they'll do more tests

1. Just curious if they did an x-ray?

2. No, not at this time.

He had a chest xray in June and it was clear, plus his lungs sounded ok today. To xray his throat would require sedation, because he's not cooperative. But she suggested 2 weeks on antibiotics should clear it up, and if not they may need to do one after that.

3. I Hope so, though a chest x-ray would rule out pneumonia

4. She said his lungs didn't sound "wet" at all.

But if the ABs don't work, that's next.

7. Prednisone always works for me.

Not sure they'd give it to a doggo though for laryngitis. People need voices to go to work, but dogs don't necessarily need to bark. Hope he feels better soon.

10. She did mention steroids, but that makes them pee a lot

so its a problem to leave him while I go to work.
