He is sneezing and...

He is sneezing and coughing. I was thinking allergies. How much Benadryl can I give him. He’s a 80 lbs lab

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. Coughing can be worrying. The Expert will know what you should do. What is the dog's name?

Ruger

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

No ma’am. This just started two nights ago.

Only a pup we bought for our daughter. But she has since left. He is eating fine. Haven’t notice much on the water
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
We stay away from dog parks.

Okay

I would rather that you do this:

Put in bathroom and put shower on hot for ten minutes

Repeat three times faily

Give Robitussin- 1 1/2 to 2 teaspoons three times daily

Update me tomorrow same time

Okay?
