5 month old chi coughing
Been 4 days and brought him to the vet to rule out collapsed trachea. She said must be a cold.
Any thoughts?

My dog does that, but she is 10 years. She has congestive heart failure, where the heart is pressing up against the trachea. She started 2.6 years ago, and is going to the end soon, I fear. She is on 3 medicines for the heart.

He runs and plays for long periods without any coughing and then as he's resting he'll cough a bit.

It's a dry cough with no fluids coming out.

Probably just an irritated trachea.

kennel cough? Reverse sneezing?

Both mine do this. Reverse sneezing in Jazz's case, Reverse sneezing exacerbated by allergies in Tango's case. They're 7 and 9, both have been to the Vet's for the coughing, and in Tango's case I've spent a small fortune on various medications to deal with the allergies, to no avail. My Vet finally told me (jokingly) to move to Alaska! :D
