Customer Question

It looks like he is swollen a little around the top part of his snout and face. He hacks and coughs sometimes white foamy stuff and sometimes nothing. Noticed two seemed like nasal cavities coming from each nostril was the first to swell up. Thinking maybe he has allergies but also the hacking makes me wander if something is caught in his throat. It's not all the time morning seems worse and he doesn't act like anything hurts still playing.
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Coughing can be worrying. The Veterinarian will know what you should do. What is the dog's name and age?
Customer: Yogi a corgi 2 and 1/2. Still eating and drinking good.
JA: How old is Yogi?
Customer: 2 and a half
JA: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Yogi?
Customer: No

1) Can you attach pictures of his snout and face?
2) Is he on any medication at this time?
3) When did the coughing start?
4) Has he been boarded, groomed, at the dog park, etc in the last 21 days?
