Customer Question

My dog is coughing when laying down. Not all day but it's become more frequent the last 2-3 days. He is a 7 month old Golden Retriever. The last few mornings when he wakes up from a night of sleep he sounds like he is coughing up phlegm and has even cough about 2 quarter size phlegm a couple of days ago.
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Could be a lot of things that cause lethargy. The Veterinarian will know how to help your dog. What is the dog's name?
Customer: He started going to a doggie day care facility the last 3 weeks where he may have picked up kennel cough? His name is Ollie.
JA: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Ollie?
Customer: He is sleeping well, eating, drinking fine and going on 2 walks per day.
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Veterinarian about your situation and then connect you two.
