    Hello, I recently gotten a new dog (Bagel, 1 year old welsh corgi mixed) and she has been sneezing quite often. We've had her for about 1 week, and she seemed fine until about 2 days ago. She'll sneeze often, and when she sleeps she snores. I noticed also that whatever she is sleeping on gets wet from her drooling and sneezing. And at times, she makes this weird hacking noise (I really don't know how to describe it, but I guess you can say it sounds like when a person tries to 'hack' mucus out of their throat and makes that noise) and she does it for 10 seconds or so. Is it just a cold or something more serious?

    Has she had her vaccines? You really might want to have a vet check, as sometimes they can pick up things while in shelters.

    Sounds like a touch of Kennel Cough, I would take pup to vets, if very mild you can use trixylix cough medicine, but would recommend a visit to vets to be sure. it could be allergies?

    I'm not sure about the sneezing, drooling and snoring part but I do know that what you are describing as far as hacking goes, my vet told me that was what they called a reverse sneeze. It sounds exactly like they are hacking up sinus drainage or something. There really isn't much you can do about that.
