Customer Question

My 5 month old puppy has rapid breathing, some coughing/gagging and is very hot to the touch. he is on antibiotics from falling last week and getting scraped up. He had a chest xray and exam and they said it was normal, but the constant panting, heat and coughing worries me. Could that be the antibiotic? Otherwise he is now energetic, eating and drinking.
