My 45 day old pup is coughing nastily and sneezing. His breathing is heavy.

Customer: Tramp
JA: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Tramp?
Customer: He has in most probability contracted something from our other pup Lady who passed away yesterday from severe pneumonia. They're from different stores.
