It's hard to say what the cause is. The vet will have to listen to his lungs, maybe due some blood tests. If it is an elderly dog, it could mean congestive heart failure and diuretics will be needed. He really needs to see a vet soon for evaluation.

He could have kennel cough. DON"T give anything over the coounter. You could really hurt your dog if you do

I had a Dobe with heart failure, and he had the same symptoms.  Your dog needs to go to a vet right away.  It could be heart problems, it could be pnuemonia (pneumonia)...it could be lots of things, but you won't know for sure unless and until you take him in.

It could be something easily treatable if you take him in now.  Even if its heart failure, there are many medications that can ease his breathing and coughing and give him a lot of quality time.

My dog had severe heart disease but was fine..I had to put her down because of kidney failure recently (I feel so sad still).  However, She had heart disease for 5 years.  She was on lasix (waterpill), enapril, another type of diaretic and vetmedin...It worked very well at keeping her lungs clear...Her cough calmed down almost completely and lived a comfortable, happy life.  She had a very enlarged heart, but the meds still worked great...best to you!
