Any ideas on what would make a dog's bark get hoarser & higher-pitched?
He doesn't bark excessively, so it's not from making too much noise &
just having a sore throat.
In about a month, my mom's ACD mix has gone from having a normal,
healthy bark to a much higher one, almost like he has laryngitis. He
also doesn't bark as much as he used to. I'm trying to talk my mom into
taking him to the vet this weekend, but I'd like to have some ideas of
anything she should make sure gets checked.
For information, he's about 3 years old, neutered and aside from this,
very healthy and energetic. His appetite is good. He's an outdoor dog
who loves to chase birds & occasionally catches one. He gets kibble with
a small amount of canned mixed in, & a few biscuits a day. He has no
problems drinking water or eating, or chewing on toys or my pup's face.
His pee & poop are the same as always. As long as he's quiet, there's no
way to tell something's not right.
Thanks for any help.
