Hello. Thanks for writing in. My name is***** and I would be happy to help you. I am not set up to do phone calls but would be happy to answer any questions you do have online. I would highly recommend getting her into your vet to get an x-ray of the chest. The blood in the phlegm causes concern for a pneumonia (sometimes may not show severe illness), pulmonary hypertension, emphysema, lung parasites (heartworms included) or tumors in the lung. It is possible for the blood to come from the trachea and mouth, but there could still be some major issues from that. Anything is possible, but it is unlikely to be due to the Adequan, considering that the cough started before then. I would be careful with injecting it under the skin. I have seen couple of dogs have really bad reactions (i.e.; granulomatous masses) from giving it that way. Please let me know if you have any other questions or concerns. Hope this helps.

My goal is to make sure that you get all your question answered and all the information you need. If you are satisfied with my answer, PLEASE RATE IT. Rating it is the only way I get credit for helping you. If you feel like it is not helpful to you, or if there is more information you need, please respond back to me before rating. Realize that our conversation is not intended to diagnose or treat a condition. There has to be a valid veterinary-client-patient relationship established with an exam, according to law. You should always follow up with your vet.
