you know come to think of it, he does sleep on his neck in his dog bed, good thing I am getting him a new bed without a rim on it. Didn't even compute that it only happened in his bed

My pug has this too. When he got to be about 8 he began to cough when he got up from a nap. The vet said it's "pug trachea syndrome" that has to do with the dog laying on his neck area, and it compresses the trachea enough to cause them to cough. It's nothing serious, and it's something they get as they get older. There are times that it gets worse for some reason, but then it always gets better, but it never goes away completely.

Lucy had it more so growing up as a puppy.
but she only gets it occassionally, but my younger one Sissy gets it still, I don't think she does it everyday??? But she might, its just an episode every once in a while.

I try to calm them down when they do it, they are both Poms

yeah only when he gets up, but doesn't seem to bother him at all, if we can get him to bark it seems to straighten out and he is fine after

Is it just when he gets up in the morning? When we adopted Merrick he honked, and wheezed every ten min (worse at night for some reason) and we thought it was the trachea problem, or asthma. Turns out (luckily for him) it was just kennel cough.

When I talked to the vet about this, he said yes its very common, and not much you can do about it except for the medication, and loves. Since Merrick is part pom, he still has the issue sometimes, we just pick him up and hug him tight till it passes. I think it hurts me more than him.

Poms are common breeds to have it and doctor said harness and joint medicine cause trachea is made out of the same stuff. But he honks every morning when getting up and I wish there was more I could do, anyone have any advice?
