Customer Question

I have a longhaired Chihuahua who has been coughing like a cat with a hairball. She tries to vomit, but nothing comes out. I've given her plenty of water too, but nothing stops her from coughing.
JA: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?
Customer: This has been going on for 2 days.
JA: OK got it. Last thing — Veterinarians generally expect a deposit of about $19 to help with your type of question (you only pay if satisfied). Now I'm going to take you to a page to place a secure deposit with JustAnswer. Don't worry, this chat is saved. After that, we will finish helping you.

Hello and thanks for trusting me to help you and your pet today. I am a licensed veterinarian with over 25 years experience and would be happy work with you but need a bit more information in order to better assist you if you don't mind.

How old is your girl?

Is she still eating normally and keeping it down?

Does she exhibit any difficulty swallowing?

Is her cough non stop or intermittent?

Thanks and I will respond further after you reply. There may be a slight delay while I formulate and

type a thorough response or I may be offline, but if so, I will respond as soon as I am able.
