dog coughs everytime drinks water
My 5 month old puppy coughs everytime drinks water
I'd recommend that you have your veterinarian examine your pup and tell him/her what is happening when your pup drinks.
It's possible that your puppy has a problem with his esophagus or palate (upper part of his mouth), and this is making it difficult for him to lap and swallow properly.
If your pup seems happy and healthy and is eating and eliminating normally, chances are this is nothing serious. However, if he seems sick in any way, has trouble eating, or with his digestive system it could be something more serious.
The only way to find out for sure is to take your pup to your veterinarian, and I'd suggest doing that as soon as you can. That way you will get a definitive answer and any treatment for your pup if it's necessary.
Best of luck.
