Hello, I am new here. I have 2 beautiful beagles that we adopted 3.5 yrs ago. We'e all been really sick here on and off for months. Both of my dogs have runny eyes, the female more so. Daisy also is constanting 'coughing', like making a hacking sound. About a week ago she was hardly eating. We planned on taking her to the vet, but she seemed to get better. Ollie is also hacking on occasion. I was just reading on the internet that it could be kennel cough. If so, is it possible for the dogs to have picked up our germs when we were sick? Connie
Are they runny eyes or are they tear stains? What color is the fluid from the eyes?
Coughing and hacking could be symptoms of several things from as harmless as minor throat irritation to as serious as a collapsing trachea and heart condition. Kennel cough is a definite possibility. Dogs don't pick up colds from humans.
It is best to have a check up. Good luck, and welcome to TerrificPets
