Hello,
I'm Dr. Jo and I'm a licensed veterinarian with more than twenty years of experience. I'm here to help with your question about Sasha's cough.

I'm so sorry you're having this problem, but glad you're looking for the information you need. You may join the conversation at any time by typing in what you want to say then clicking REPLY or SEND. Then we can chat back and forth until you're satisfied with the information I've provided. I'll do my best to earn your good rating, because that's the only way I receive any compensation for helping you.

In order to help me help you better, I'll need a little more information. To start with, please tell me the following:

  • Is she on any medications, including heartworm prevention?
  • How old is she?
  • Has she recently been boarded or groomed?
  • Is her cough worse with exercise?
  • Does she wake up at night coughing?

I'll look for your reply soon and will do my best to help. Thank you.
