My golden retriever puppy...

My golden retriever puppy, DOB 11-10-17, just had a bath 75 minutes ago and is having what appears to be coughing and gagging. He's not showing s/s of anaphylaxis (no swollen face, gums etc) but I am not sure what an asthma attack looks like in a puppy. I also think he could have a partial airway obstruction but when I looked of course can't see anything due to his long throat, gagging, etc. He also has what appears to be an elevated HR and shivering. I guess it could be a panic attack? Not sure? As an ICU nurse comfortable to handling breathing problems I don't think he is in acute distress but am wondering if it would be a partial airway obstruction what would I do next? I've bagged many a human but never a puppy...

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. Coughing can be worrying. The Expert will know what you should do. Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about DOB?

DOB is date of birth

Hello, I'm Dr. Luke and I would be happy to help you with your question. I am so sorry about your pet. I have over 19 years of experience as a veterinarian and I'd like to help. Are you available to discuss this situation online at this time? (if you get a phone call prompt from the system, please disregard as I am unable to do a phone call at this time).

***************

Asthma is very rare in dogs so it is unlikely to be that.

Are you able to look at the color of their gums?

Did he enjoy the bath or was he bothered by it?

Could he have 'inhaled' some water/soap?

Thx. His condition is resolving. I think he will be fine. Gums looked ok; he liked the bath; doubt he inhaled soap but right now he looks OK. I'll message back if it worsens but right now trending in right direction. Thanks. Kelly

Ok. Thanks for the update.
