What makes my 9 week old dachshund cough a lot?

It can be hair from their fur; dust mites; allergies or dry mouth. It's time to take your dachshund to the vets to have him/her diagnose correctly. Constant coughing can also be a sign of a weak heart. Be smart, be sure and see your vet.


Your dachshund may also be allergic to something- maybe even something in its dog food. Dogs are allergic to most meats, so you might want to try switching to a different dogfood to see if it will help. First, you should ask your about this. :)


Heartworm also makes them cough as well as congestive heart failure.
