Customer Question
Hi, our Pomeranian puppy...

Hi, our Pomeranian puppy is approximately 3 months old and is coughing as though something is stuck in his throat. He vomited clear liquid which appeared bubbly. Should I be concerned. It's not a continual cough but is quite severe when he gets it. He gets it whether he's playing or just sitting. Thank you.

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. Hopefully it didn't make a mess. Did Puppy eat anything unusual?

No he eats only royal canin for puppies.

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

Not that I'm aware of. He's had this cough since about 1 month old but it seems to be getting worse.

Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you today.

Since he has had this for a while, has any tests been done? Any treatment?

Can he eat and drink at all? Does he keep food/water down?

Any nasal discharge? What color? From one or both nostrils?

Are his gums pink or pale/white?

Can you take a breathing rate for me (just count his breaths for 10 seconds + multiply by 6)?
