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, but can you tell me:

How long has she had the cough?

Does it seem to happen more when she is excited or at rest?

Does she ever seem to faint?

Any breathing changes?

Are her gums pink or pale/white?
