Can a dog lose its voice?

Either temporarily or permanently.

Yes, this can happen if the dog has had an unusually high barking spree, or if there is an infection present. To correctly identify what has caused the dog to lose his or her voice, consult a vet.

Just like a human, a dog can "lose its voice" if it barks too much and too loud and tires out its vocal cords. A dog probably can't lose its voice permanently, but dogs can be "de-barked," which is an operation that will essentially silence your dog's bark by altering its vocal cords permanently.

Yes, just like humans dogs have a larygnx (voicebox) and can suffer from laryngitis (inflammation of the voicebox). Treat with anti-inflammitories.

Just like humans, dogs can lose their voices if there is damage to their vocal cords. However, this of course, is rare.

Yes, it can. Dogs have the same voice system that human (structural). So, they can lost their voices for time ou permanently. The dog can lose its voice when it suffer some accident ou get some injurie that hit his voice system. When this occur, maybe only a doc can help.
