Customer Question
My dog has been...

My dog has been coughing and gagging now for about 4 hours. When he is at rest he doesn’t cough only when he gets up.

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. Could be a lot of things that cause lethargy. The Expert will know how to help your dog. What is the dog's name and age?

Harley and he is 4 years old

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Harley?

No he is normally healthy and up to date on all his shots. I have had the flu, could he get that?
