Started a few weeks ago, pretty often now.
Customer reply replied 8 months ago
No meds
Customer reply replied 8 months ago
He has arthritis, his leg gets jammed sometimes

No recent contact with other dogs- kennel, groomer, dog park?

Vaccines current?

Exercise intolerance?

Gums pink?

He gets groomed once a month, groomer said he tries to bite her, he never did before now
Customer reply replied 8 months ago
Gums pink, few teeth, vaccines ok, he walks a few minutes a Day mostly sleeps

Okay thank you.

Here is what you need to do:

Place in bathroom and turn shower on hot for ten minutes.

Do this three times a day for a few days.

Hopefully this is just kennel cough or some bronchitis.

IF the cough does not improve then you need to take her in for chest x-rays and a physical examination at very least.

This will rule out pneumonia or heart disease and also fluid around the heart and lungs.

They can also then get you a good cough suppressant and other meds based on the findings.

Update me tomorrow AM

Make sense?
