(Posted by JustAnswer at customer's request) Hello. I would like to request the following Expert Service(s) from you: Live Phone Call. Let me know if you need more information, or send me the service offer(s) so we can proceed.
Dog Veterinarian: Dr. Peter, Veterinarian replied 3 years ago
Friend, the type of coughing you are describing is consistent with an upper respiratory infection. Basically he has a dog cold. As a precaution it is also important to rule out disorders affecting the heart and lungs.
I would recommend a hands on exam with family vet to listen to his heart/lungs make sure everything is fine. In the meantime you can start him on Robitussin DM (cough) 1/2 teaspoon every 6-8 hours. You can buy Robitussin DM over the counter in any pharmacy.
Please do not forget to rate my answer - I hope you found it to be excellent. If there’s more I can do, please use the reply tab and let me know. It’s my goal to provide you with excellent service." Thank you for your business and I hope to work with you again soon!
