Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you today. I do apologize that your question was not answered before. Different experts come online at various times; I just came online, read about your wee one’s situation, and wanted to help. Again I do apologize that my colleagues could not aid you sooner. If you would still like assistance, can you tell me: Does she bring up any of her food?Can she keep water down? Is the cough quite harsh ? Does she have coughing fits and then retch/vomit? Any history of heart issues?
