Customer Question
Second opinion] My dog...

Second opinion] My dog has a persistent cough for about 8 months and getting worse, we live in Tasmania so heart worm isn't a problem and we have always been up to date with his yearly visits to a vet. we lived in Queensland for years and moved to Tasmania about 16 months ago. No other symptoms has been noted.

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?

His name is Snuffy.

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Snuffy?

He has always had a sensitive neck so we could never have a lead around his neck or collar. other then that he is a healthy dog.
