My dog is 4.5 years old. 13 pounds, Yorkie and pikanese

My dog is 4.5 years old. 13 pounds, Yorkie and pikanese mixed. Eats well, walks daily, and drinks plenty of water. She's been having coughing spells for the last week and a half. A vet saw her today and checked her lungs and there were no issues. She told me tho watch and listen for a few more days. If it persists, have xrays taken. Would you have any idea what I can do before taking xrays to minimize the symptoms? Should I take her to emergency instead?

I have a 8 year old black Lab, Dodger, that has not eaten in

I have a 8 year old black Lab, Dodger, that has not eaten in 5 days and what water he drinks he vomits out. We took him to the Dog Beach in Long Beach last Saturday and he swam and fetched the ball for about 2 hours. When we hot home he drank about a half gallon of water. By Sunday evening he was not eating much and he started to just lay around. On Monday he vomited about 4 times so we took him to the Vet's on Tuesday morning. The vet did a blood test and ruled out paratinitus. He also took x-rays and found that there was excess gas in the stomach/intestines with pockets of gas throughout. He also found compression of the lumbar in the inter-vertebral spaces. He prescribed Meloxicam, 7.5mg tablet, for pain and Gas-ex for the gas. He also gave us a Probiotic he said would help with the stomach. By Tuesday evening he stopped eating all together and by Friday morning he was still vomiting so I took him back to the Vet. They took another x-ray and saw that Dodger also had the same vertebrae compression in his neck so they gave him a shot of Vetalog. He told me the injection would help with the pain and hopefully allow Dodger to start eating again. It'seems been about 30 hours since the shot and Dodger has shown zero improvement, he appears to be even more lethargic now. He had a violent vomiting episode this morning, crying out while vomiting and the vomit had a lot of mucus in it, but no blood. The Vet is concentrating on the pain the spinal compression is causing. Do you think with all the salt water he ingested at the beach could have caused an intestinal bacterial infection?
