Has all the symptoms...

Has all the symptoms of kennel cough but has been tested before and it's still happening. Foghorn cough retching sometimes throwing up white foam

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

No but when I go to my daughter's house it usually happens. Is there anything in puppy food (she has a puppy) that she might eat some when were not looking that would do this?

Veterinarian's Assistant: What is the dog's name?

Daisy she's 13

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

No she's a year old now big golden retriever

No park or kennel, she gets mobile groomed no other dogs but that was almost a month ago. This happens mostly when I come to my daughter's house. She gets into their puppy's food could that do it? Sometimes it happens at home though but not this bad. Yes she is still eating and drinking. She does it all night long

Thanks

Puppy's food not going to do it

Lets manage it acute non-productive cough

Put into bathroom and out shower on hot for ten minutes

Repeat three times a day

Give 2 teaspoons of Robitussin DM three times a day

These two things should help a lot for symptomatic relief

I am wondering if the cough is secondary to her playing/running around more with the puppy?

So at some point having her checked for laryngeal paralysis and chest x-rays would be a very good idea

Okay?

she has a collapsing laryx common in Poms she said. But she's looks like she's in agony
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
will the Robitussin still help?

Oh yes the Robitussin will help tons with the collapsing trachea-? It stops the irritation/cough cycle :)

Thank you. What's best way to give it to her? I doubt she will take it off a spoon. unless dogs like that?

You can use spoon-> Just put it into her cheek pouch and then hold mouth closed

Works well
