This is Kennady Longhurst, 22, and her husband is Alex Salsberry, 25, from Utah with their dog Sullivan ("Sully" for short).
Last Thursday, Longhurst said she came home for lunch and heard Sully making "this weird combination of coughing, choking, clearing his throat sound." She was alarmed and called her husband, who returned home from work immediately.
The cough appeared to have stopped that night. But the following morning, as Salsberry got ready for work, Sully started to cough again.
Salsberry worked from home, and the couple ultimately decided it'd be best to take Sully to the vet to get the cough checked out.
