Dog coughing after meals and randomly
My ~13 year old goldendoodle was been reverse-sneezing/couging after eating her breakfast and dinner the last 5-7 days. It is very short lived and doesn't seem to even stress her out, but it is a new behavior.
I take her on daily walks and 1 out of 3 walks she will pull, hack, then spit up a small amount of foamy spit. But then continue on her walk and normal, silly behavior.
She has started "grunting and moaning" when she lays down, as if she is getting comfortable. This is new behavior as well.
Other than these, she is 100% normal. Breathes fine, still plays like a puppy without issue and no other change in behavior or demeanor.
Has anyone experienced this? Is this just maybe "getting older behavior?" My vet is on vacation until next Friday so I thought I would ask here first. Of course, if this should change or if I thought she did need to see another vet I would be there in heartbeat.
Thanks for any advice!
