I have noticed that every time that Monty takes a drink of water he coughs. Should this be something to worry about? Monty is 5 months old, a Min Pin/Chi mix or maybe a Manchester. I am not sure what breed he is; my husband rescued him.

Dogs have a little flap in their throats which sometimes gets stuck. Talk to your vet about the technical terms. My two dogs have had it for years & although it's distressing.


It us unlikely to be life threatening at this stage - small dogs are prone to this problem - Tricia I think it's called. I just rub their necks to comfort them in the hope it will open the flap up - you can google the problem to put your mind at rest.

MY dachshund does this quite often. After drinking, after eating grass and sometimes for no apparent reason.
