What symptoms is your dog showing? Cough, Sneezing, runny nose, fever? Also how old is your basset? Probably worth a trip to the vet.. Coughing can be a symptom of quite a few conditions, some of them serious.With the recent cold spell it appears that my basset has come down with the cold.[/b]
good advice. It could be Kennel cough, or as Betsy said, any nomber of things. Not to scare you, but Duke's "cough" turned out to be a symptom of Blastomycosis, which killed him. A cough needs to be checked out...keep us posted.
