Ask a Dog Vet and Get Answers to Your Dog Health Questions
Hello. Thanks for writing in. My name is***** and I would be happy to help you. This puppy is way too young to give Robitussin DM. It would not be a good idea. If a puppy this young is coughing, it is most likely due to an infection in some sort. In those cases, the cough is actually a protective mechanism to get the infection out. If coughing, she needs to be on antibiotics instead. I would get her into see your vet tomorrow. Puppies this young have a very low tolerance for respiratory infections. They can develop into a pneumonia very easily. Please let me know if you have any other questions or concerns. Hope this helps.
