Squeek, hack, bark

  1. Got a year old male who barks his fool head off in the pen all night but its not a really loud beagle sounding bark, when he jumps a rabbit, he opens his mouth and nothing comes out. Maybe a little scratchy sounding squeek, and thats it. What you think is his problem?

    Inflated vocal cords would be my guess from barking in the pen all the time.

    Best treatment is liquid benadryl daily without running him for awhile along with a Tritronic set on 6 given to him as much as required. Works too, cured one myself recently. Has a pretty chop now.

    I agree James, I had one that barked 24 / 7 and just drive you nuts. You will have to get him to stop barking before he will get better. I used a bark collar but it wouldn't work on him. Tritonic on high is a better choice. I didn't have one at the time so I had to get rid of him, but before I did he would stand there barking with laryngitis so bad he had no voice.
