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.
