Customer Question
I gave him about...

I gave him about 6 ml of dextromethorphan, guaifenesin, and phenylephribe. I was trying to help his breathing, but I fear I’ve nade it worse. He’s a 40# ***** A pit mix. He’s so restless and can’t breathe well.

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. What is the matter with the puppy?

He’s not breathing well. No cough.

Veterinarian's Assistant: Coughing can be worrying. The Expert will know what you should do. Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about the puppy?

He’s a boxer/pit mix and I’ve tried to relieve his breathing, hoarse voice with sone dextromethorphan, guaifenesin, and phenylephribe, about 6ml.
