    have the vet check and see if it is a sore throat and then he will treat him accordingly, mine are on antibiotics.

    good luck!! It probably is from barking alot. Even we get hoarse from yelling and screaming at ball games and ect>

    Barking a lot has never slowed my Rockie down or made her hoarse. She could go all day and night if I let her. I would definitely have it checked by a vet just to be sure.

    The neighbors dog....two house down.....barks all day long until they take him in. Sometimes that is not until around 8ish at night. He's barking right now.....and it's non~stop......

    I too would make a trip to the vet.

    can anyone tell me if this is serious?

    Well, no one really can say if it is serious or not. Only a vet could say that by seeing your pet. My Bergie still chokes when we ask her to speak. She gets all excited and barks and then chokes like it got stuck there. She has done this since a baby and not serious. She is just learning how to use the vocals. The other day she saw something outside and started barking for the very first time (she's 9 months) without choking. I think the difference is when she barks for us it's more high pitched...when she barks at something outside it's more low and serious. She has never coughed though, just gagged.

    But, like everyone here said, if you are really concerned you need to take him to the vet. Check around, many vets are reasonable in their prices and may offer a payment plan for you. Has he been to a vet in the past? If so try to take him there. If the vet knows the pet they will usually help with payments.

    I have a question. My dog is acting like he is choking on a hairball when he tries to bark. He is known to have allergies and has to get shots about twice a year for them but this is new. Anyone have an idea?

    It can be an allergy.

    People experience allergies and so do our dogs. As dog lovers we feel badly for our dogs as we know from our personal allergy experiences how uncomfortable and miserable allergy symptoms can make us feel.

    Our symptoms include itching skin, watery eyes, red eyes, sneezing, wheezing, breathing difficulties, reddened patches, blistering or rashes on our skin, scratchy or sore throat.
