First off, my apologies if I'm breaking any rules inadvertently, I haven't taken the time to read the rules yet.
My dog (mix breed, mostly Manchester terrier we believe, aprox. 5-7yrs old) is hacking and coughing, almost to the verge of vomiting. Beyond this, his breathing doesn't appear to be labored.
He is also licking the floor constantly, or whatever surface he is on (ie. the couch), and eating anything he comes across. We led him to his water bowl but he wasn't interested, so instead I fed him an ice cube hoping water would help.
I have no idea why he's licking everything, but it appears something is caught in his throat. I'm hoping someone can confirm this and let me know if these symptoms might be because of anything else.
