    My dog keeps trying to cough something up, but can't.

    It happens when shes sleeping, excited, waking up, and stretching , so whenever.

    It sounds like she is choking on something, but I don't see anything down her throat and rubbing her throat helps her stop.

    She does lick herself, not like a dog does, but like a cat does. She licks any part of her body she can get to almost daily.

    She is a boxer so she sheds.

    Could it be hairballs?

    Anyone have experience with this with their dogs?

    I think its like...You know when you go for a really long bike ride, or a really fast run, and you're winded by the end of it and your throat is all dry?
    That's what I think it is haha
    My dog does it too. Offer some water is the best advice I can give you.

    My dog coughs occassionally, nothing to worry about IMO. However, if I was as worried as you seem to be then I would definitely bypass waiting for responses from here and go to the vet and let them decide. Better safe than sorry.

    can you describe the cough? any mucous around the nose or mouth when he's coughing? i realize it's early in the season, but are there foxtails or some kind of weed in your yard that would grab on and dig in?

    Best thing to do would be to take it to a vet for a piece of mind...

    My dog hacks a little after running or if he pulls on his collar, not sure if that's what you're referring to, but it's probably fine.

    How recent was the kennel cough vaccine? They don't last as long as other shots, ~6mos or so. What do you use for heartworms? My vet told me that the drop on the neck stuff doesn't work that great and dogs medicated with it can still get them.
    One of my dogs gets really coughy come spring time too, something in the air.
    We aim to remember what we chose to forget...
