Ask a dog vet and get answers to your dog health questions
HI this is DRB and I would be happy to help you with this...
are you saying your dog's breathing is labored or exactly what is the problem?
If you will leave me your exact questions/ concerns I will be happy to get back to you as I check my computer nightly.
I will tell you that drinking ocean water can lead to osmotic diarrhea and sometimes nausea and vomiting.....if your dog starts to have intractable diarrhea you should see a vet immediately....please let me know how I can help you...DRB
can I answer any other questions for you or assist you in any way?
Was your dog having any of those symptoms before being at ocean today?
So, I suspect that she swallowed some ocean water which can definitely cause coughing...we also have to consider this could be coincidental and there is something else going on.....
are her gums pink?
Is she sleeping?
Is she sleeping while taking short breaths?
How is she breathing now?
Hopefully beef rib meat not covered in sauce?
can I answer any other questions?
Perfect.....I think she will probably be ok....likely swallowed too much water.....if breathing gets worse instead of better like it is now, go to the ER...
can I help you nay further tonight?
This all sounds better...I have to retire for the night as I have early surgery..I suspect she will be fine...but watch her close and let me know if you need anything tomorrow as I check my computer nightly...DRB
