He sounds like he...

He sounds like he is chocking but he isn't and it's random

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. What is the matter with the dog?

Sounds like he is going to throw up but nothing happens

Veterinarian's Assistant: Hopefully it didn't make a mess. Did the dog eat anything unusual?

No he's my first dog so I don't know if it's just him coughing

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

Inigo

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

No he's very healthy, is it possible for him to get sick from us?

We went for a walk today and it's been a while since it's so cold in Minnesota that I had to pull on him kinda hard cause that have hurt him causing him to try to caught a breath?

Ha ha

I am from Minnesota- Stillwater :)

Yeah the dry air and pulling on neck could be the problems

We can manage this at home though i think

Still bright and alert?

Oh yes very much so, it has happened twice but in between the two times he eat his dinner and drank water and ran around the house with my husband

Great

Lets put in bathroom and turn shower on hot for ten minutes

Repeat three times a day

Give one teaspoon of Robitussin DM three times a day

That should sort things out for us

Okay?
