Have any of you had a similar situation? Could it be something minor? I'm so afraid it's a tumor.


My friend has a relative who's a vet, and I asked her to give the relative a call with your question. The response I got was, "Coughing could be due to many things, not least of which could be a simple irritation. It's possible that [Matlock] was chewing on something that caused an irritation, and that it's a very minor problem....coughing does not in and of itself automatically point to something serious like a tumor."

I'm passing this on to you, FWIW, and hoping that you won't be too nervous between now and Thursday. Good luck with the visit, and please let us know what happens.

...but I still am...
