My dog just chewed wires in the sprinkler controller. I found some pieces in the yard. She was sneezing, violently but has now calmed down. No blood present in her mouth and no chemical smell. Chewed plastic bits found in yard with a piece of wire.Should I give her some bread to coat the irritant so it passes or take her to local emergency for X-rays?
My 11 y-o, female, Old English Bulldog was taken to see her
Good Evening! My 11 y-o, female, Old English Bulldog was taken to see her vet this week for what I suspected was flu or pneumonia or Valley Fever (we live in the desert and Valley Fever is fairly common). Her blood work came back negative on all counts. Her vet (in whom I have great trust) put her on Furosemide 20mg/bid, and Clindamycin 300mg/bid. She also takes Meloxicam 3.75mg for lameness. She has been on the Furosemide and Clindamycin since Wednesday (3 days=6 doses) and continues to sneeze, cough and have difficulty breathing (although her tongue thankfully remains pink). Her vet suggested that if there is no improvement I should take her in for a cardiac ultrasound to rule out heart failure. I am on board with this and will do this, but given the other symptoms (sneezing and coughing) would it not make sense to give her some Diphenhydramine? My deepest thanks and advance. DonJA: I'm sorry to hear that. Have you looked to see if there is a wound on their foot?Customer: Great question. I just did now. There is no wound. I'm impressed with your question, however.JA: How old is Don?Customer: My dog, Peaches, is approximately 10-11. We don't know exactly because she was a rescue.JA: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Don?Customer: I believe that I have covered everything. I am incredibly grateful to you all, however!
