I just wanted to let you all know that I took Patch to my vet and it all turns out to be allergies and allergy related.And he has not coughed at all in the past couple of weeks so that is a great sign...
Thanks to all of you :)

coughing/pale gums
by: Paddy's Mom

I am not a VET! I do know pale gums and coughing can sometimes be signs of worms! He should have a blood test for hook worms, or lung worms, that can be obtained from slug larvae. So sorry about this! Wishing you the best of luck..
