Had kennel cough was...

Had kennel cough was eating and drinking through the cough, cough up yellowish fluid, cough is gone but now he won't eat or drink losing weight also and very weak breathing is heavy

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 and age?

Dewey and 10yrs old you guys helped in the past with Dewey he came home and we didn't know if it was a coyote or road rash but you guys helped us through it and it worked hopefully we can get the same help now

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

I hope he's not dying just turned 10 last week. Last week noticed his collar was very loose. He had the cough for probably 2 months gave him robitussin 2 bottles but the cough is gone and now he won't eat or drink getting really worried

Hi

Dr. Paul Brazzell here

I am also very worried

Kennel cough does not cause fluid to be produced from lungs

Did they take chest x-rays?

What breed is he?

Increased thirst/ urination?

Paul

Did they take chest x-rays previously?

Paul

Customer reply replied 3 months ago
no xrays
Customer reply replied 3 months ago
Dewey is greyhound, husky and German Shepard

Okay that is the next step just to make sure there are no residual lesion/problems

But I would also recommend examination and blood and urine tests

I think that the current signs are unrelated to the previous lung issues (but again the chest x-rays are needed to rule that out)

I am worries about inflammation like pancreatitis or gastritis or inflammatory bowel disease but we also have to consider kidney and liver disease and infection

Make sense?

Should I contact mobile vet to run test he's too weak and vet has no openings til next week

Absolutely!

We need to move things along

Other option is to call your regular vet and tell them you are coming in and they better make a spot for you

Do not take no for an answer
