I have a dog that has a hacking cough. I’ve only had her for a month but every time I run her the coughing returns. Takes a week to get some better but never goes completely away. She acts fine. Any suggestions on cause or treatment?

Nope when my nephews dogs had heartworms they told me to keep giving ivermectin , even while they were being treated . But I guess it could kill them as well as the treatment could , but they don’t tell you to stop monthly heartworm prevention . Well my Vet didn’t , twice , anyway . Sometimes they treat them for heart worms with a series of high doses of ivermectin .

Both of my nephews dogs that were treated never were the same dog again running . I took one to the pound and the other one is on the cull list if she has problems this season .
I was hoping to get her back in really good shape and have a littler because she a pretty good dang rabbit dog from what I’ve saw so far and well bred, but I’m not sure she’ll ever get to have another

I had one that had lung fungus. Thought it was kennel cough but didn’t act exactly like kennel cough. When I ran her she would cough and at times she would cough. It turned out to be a lung fungus they put her on heavy antibiotics and she is running great today
