Hoarse howl

6 posts in this topic

I picked up my 4 year old beagle from the kennell where he stayed for 2 weeks.

He is hoarse, its like he has a sore throat. He tries to howl but its so quiet

Should I be worried???

Are all his shots current? It might be Bordetella.

Sounds like it might be kennel cough... (which is the same as Bordetella confused.gif)

Can be kennel cough... could just be the fact he sat and barked for 2 weeks straight and has strained his vocal cords. I've seen it happen to dogs several times. If he doesn't develop a cough, or raspy wheeze or sound like he's constantly clearing his throat, and only happens on the howl or bark, I'd guess vocal cords. You can take him in and have him looked at by your vet, the costs associated with the treatment, if needed, will be minimal.

Good Luck!

The lady said he howled for like 2 days straight. No wheeze, cough or clearing of throat. Actually today it seemed to have more noise to it. Thanks guys

The first few times I sent my dog to the kennel, he came back with a raspy bark. It was from the constant barking while at the kennel.

      Nice thats what I like to hear, was doing an annual trip to LOW with my buddies, but to be quite honest biggest fish I ever saw in 10 plus trips was 27 inches, I caught 3 bigger than that on the pond last year, and hey I can stay in Wright county where I live and catch 10 inch walleyes.. I don't make it up to that end of the lake ever, usually fish the south end..Bought a wheel house this year, would loke to set it up as base camp and hopefully be able to head up toward that end and do some exploring..And thanks for the input, thinking there is a lot of readers and not many writers on this site nowadays...

      Lake Marion is completely iced over. Hopefully we won't get much snow and be fishing soon.

      Silver lake in New Brighton is iced over. I'm going to count one week before checking thickness on my early ice spots. Could be fishing next Friday if all goes well.
