can dogs get hairballs??

Buddy has been gagging/coughing lately. It's almost like he's trying to get rid of something, but nothing ever comes up. Is it possible for a dog to get a hairball? He is also in need of a good teeth cleaning. Could that have something to do with it? Thanks in advance.

Have you had a vet check him out? I doubt a hairball would be the culprit, but a stick or part of a woobie could be stuck in his throat.....
We go tomorrow. I'm so worried it'll be something bad. :( We're just settling down after our rabbit Clover had her uterous removed due to cancer.
