If your dog is hacking away or constantly making noises that make it sound like he's choking on something, he may have a case of kennel cough, or canine infectious tracheobronchitis.

Although kennel cough can sound terrible, most of the time it is not a serious condition, and most dogs will recover without treatment.

Year two for a dog equals about nine years for a human. And after that, each human year would be approximately five years for a dog.
