Here is some information about coughing and sneezing to read over, so you have a better idea of why your pet is suffering from these symptoms and how our vets can help.

Watch Your Pet for Symptom Frequency

Some pets will cough or sneeze sporadically due to dust in the air or a change in illumination in the area. This type of coughing or sneezing is temporary and does not require vet intervention. If you notice that your pet is coughing or sneezing excessively, for example, several times an hour, or if it does not cease after a full day, its best to call our Winter Garden veterinarians to have your pet evaluated.

Look Beyond the Symptoms for Possible Causes

Take a look at your pet’s surroundings for any possible clues about why they are suffering from these respiratory difficulties. Your pet may be having an allergic reaction to something in the environment or food that they had recently eaten.¬† Some symptoms your pet may experience are difficulty breathing, wheezing, coughing, sneezing, and nasal or eye discharge.
