They kinda all sound a little different, Jess. Depends on the dog, the size of the dog and why the dog is coughing.

If Chloe is coughing and drooling that's a pretty good sign she's might have something caught in her throat.

No, it doesn't sound like a human cough. To me it sounds like a very short, sharp exhale. I found that some dogs make a honking noise, which is really weird -- mine are almost silent if they do cough.

The cause of the cough affects the sound too -- kennel cough, for one, sounds absolutely ghastly. it's hard not to notice it.

Different. It's kinda like a sneeze almost, but not really.

But definitely not like a human cough... what's goin on?

No shes not coughing oddly enough every since our visit with the specialist every once in awhile she will make this (you know how we clear our throats) kind of sound...

and the specialist said that if she started coughing or anything like that to bring her back, but I dont even know what a dog cough sounds like

it'll be ok Jess--I would imagine a phone call will work, at least to know what you should or shouldn't be concerned about. (((HUGS)))

Take her to your normal vet. Is it a possible side effect to something they did? I'm not sure why they would tell you to take her back for just a cough, unless they did something that maybe would aggravate the throat?
