My dog had the same problem last night, he is 13 yr old now and that happened twice before (10 months ago), both occured in a warm humid night while he was in a deep sleep. Last night, I first heard his breathe was heavy, then he coughed a bit & he started screaming in a horrified tone. I can tell he was very scared by his eyes. I have to keep calling his name, gently pat him just to wake him. It took him a few minutes to completely wake up. I do think it is from the heat - weather, that make him couldn't breath at the beginning (he has a little problem with his heart value). I did mention that to my vet about the screaming while asleep, and my vet told me it's normal since he didn't have any seizure.

Oh that is so sad. If it were my pet I think I would do tons of research. Could he be having a nightmare?
I have never heard of this as an adult dog.

believe me I've done enough research since 10 months ago. Unforturnately, the conclusions are the same.

six months later, he had a heart attack, it wasn't a bad dream that he had, it was a heart pain that triggering him screaming. He passed away a year ago, and I want other pet owners to be aware of this problem. Hugo my love, rest in peace.
