    This is a suggestion, but not a diagnoses. What kind of heat do you have? Perhaps the air in your home is too dry. Try using a humidifier, or if you have a wood stove, put a pot of water on the stove-to add some humidity to the air. If he has no other signs of illness, this may help. He may even have a sore throat. If he has not allergies, you could give him a little honey. If it continues I would seek vet.

    Is it possible that he ate something and was gagging a bit?

    Could be allergies and the suggestion on the humidifier is a great one. Hope that will help Hercules.

    Glad he has stopped coughing for now. I would just keep an eye on him and hope it doesn't return.

    @2BullyMama he's doing good. He hasn't coughed or anything since that day. I want to think Hercules was just a being a drama queen! He does these weird moppy and limping things when he feels he's being neglected when really he's doing his own thing. Hahaha and I know he's faking because when we go and love up on him he goes back to running wild. But I did tell the vet about his cough and she said to keep watching.
