Hello, JACustomer. I have been a Veterinary Nurse for over 15 years and would be happy to help you today. I'm reviewing your question right now.

Expert:  PitRottMommy replied 1 month ago.

1) Has Tai Chi had any recent exposure to other dogs through boarding, grooming, doggy day care, dog parks, veterinary visit, etc. in the last 21 days?

2) Does her hacking sound similar to this?

3) Any vomiting or diarrhea?

4) Any changes in her demeanor?
