Hi this is Dr. Sara. I am curious if you think Milly has a cough? OR there is something called a reverse sneeze that is common. How is she acting/feeling otherwise?

Customer: replied 3 months ago.
Tired and slow moving she hasn't ate anything yet today
Expert:  Dr. Sara replied 3 months ago.

Oh well that is more concerning. Has Milly had any exposure to other dogs...i.e. grooming/doggie daycare/boarding?

Customer: replied 3 months ago.
No

Wow, we must have quite a time difference, I am still here today if you need anything. If it seems like a cough and she is lethargic/not eating etc. then maybe she needs an x-ray and possibly antibiotics that your veterinarian can prescribe. If you think it seems more like a sneeze/reverse sneeze(which you can look at videos on youtube) you can try an antihistamine. I would just need to know what she weighs to give you a dose. I really like Claritin for this. Get back to me when you are able.
