Dr. Roger and Dr. Karen discuss various conditions that commonly lead to hacking, gagging, coughing, and compromised breathing in dogs. The conditions they highlight - laryngeal paralysis, brachycephalic syndrome, collapsing trachea, allergic tracheitis, and canine upper respiratory infection disease complex - may be inherited or acquired. Whether inherited or acquired, they are common, clinically relevant conditions that veterinarians contend with on a daily basis.
