After reading some of the answers to this question on what to do when your dog starts coughing loud, or appears having a "Panic" attack.
What "I" do, that helpf VERY well, is I put my hand upon their throat area and gently rub it up and down the neck. My dog is a standard Dacshund " wiener doggie, she does this sometimes when she gets really excited or at night too, but once I start rubbing her throat, she stops. Along with while I'm rubbing her neck, I tell her it's OK, its ok. This has been and works great for me.View Thread
