Dog Veterinarian: PitRottMommy, Veterinary Nurse replied 8 months ago

Are you hearing coughing or seeing vomiting/dry heaving?

Is she eating and drinking well?

Have there been any changes to the diet? New food, including a change of flavors or protein source within the same brand? New treats? Bones? Has any human food been fed? Torn up toys or trash? Stressful changes to the environment?

Has she boarded, groomed, in for vaccines, at doggy daycare, dog park or any similar situation around other dogs in the last 21 days?

None of the above and no she's not eating just drinking every so often I don't if she could be wormy or not
Dog Veterinarian: PitRottMommy, Veterinary Nurse replied 8 months ago

I may be misunderstanding, then. You posted in your original comment that: "she hakes but nothing comes up". I presume you're meaning she "hacks" but nothing comes up. However, when I inquired if you hearing coughing or seeing vomiting/dry heaving, you said no. Can you clarify?

I've been waiting for your reply. It's quite difficult to help someone over the internet without information being provided that would otherwise help me to help you. Good luck with your pup. I'll contact customer service for you.
