    My dog Jilly is a black lab that is 13 years old. She coughs and sometimes throws up a flemy substance. The flem is clear and thick.
    My dog Blake is a Jack Russell/collie mix that is 5 years old. He coughs and sometimes throws up a flemy substance. The flem is clear and thick.
    I have a 4 year old german shepherd/Chesapeake retriever mix and she does not have any of these symptoms.
    Is this something I should be concerned with?
