My dog is 2 years old a male and is a boxer/rot mix.
He is active and fit and up to date on his shots and was tested last Aug. for heart worm and was ok.
For about 5 days he has had a hack/cough seems to be worsening
He has been eating grass and throwing it up and I have found a little pile of slimy mucus twice, once with grass. kinda clear like thick saliva.
His nose is dry.
He still plays with the other dog and cats and runs around outside He eats well and drinks normally.
He is obviously bothered by this condition
He moves his mouth a lot kinda like chewing but different
What does this sound like?
What can I do in lieu of an office visit i.e kids cough syrup ect...?
I really appreciate the in depth answer yet I had a follow up...
should I still expect it to get worse before better? In other words if tomorrow is worse than today I should not be alarmed correct. And how do you suggest I get him to take cough syrup?
Thank you very much!!:)
Limiting the rough play has helped. He wont eat dry food so I gave moist can food, put cough syrup in this and watched him eat. I wonder bit more if he ate a bumble bee he's been trying forever. Is that possible? Would it heal on its own?
Thank you for following up it was a touch. I will use this service again.
