Shistzu problem

We just  purchased a shih-tzu, about 11 months old from a pet store. When we brought him home, he started to look like what was gaging, or coughing or sneezing. I though it might of been hair or something but it keeps happening. After he coughs which his whole body seems to jerk, he lays down like he's tired. Is this a common problem with these types of dogs? Could it be something serious, or allergy related?

Is he coughing anything up? Does it happen at any ceratin time (after eating, after being outside, after play)? Is he eating/drinking normally?

It could certainly be allergies but you should have him evaluated by a vet just to be sure. It could also be an upper resp. infection, kennel cough or many other things. I would have him checked out to be on the safe side.

Congrats on you new puppy!       :)
