Kennel Cough in Chug Puppies
Chug Puppies can be predisposed to choking fits, but it is important not to mistake it for Kennel Cough. Kennel cough is an infection of the bronchial tubes that results in a hacking and hoarse cough. It often sounds as though the chug puppies airways are clogged.
Generally this illness resolves on it’s own and usually coughing is the only symptom.
