Cough, vomiting. diarrhea unknown...

Cough, vomiting. diarrhea unknown? Looks and sounds like kennel cough, but dog hasn’t been boarded lately. However was groomed 10 days ago.

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

Did get into the trash on Sunday night. So probably. Also has been drinking some stagnant water due to a melted home ice rink. ( which is almost drained)

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

Arnie

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

He’s seem normal. ( other than the dry heaving, and 1 episode of vomit) not lethargic, wants to play. He’s 1.8 years old. Ate a bowl of food at 6:00.

Pretty much!
Customer reply replied 3 months ago
The fact he hasn’t been with other dogs in 10 days is concerning.

Kennel cough

Incubation period is about a week

Put in bathroom for ten minutes with shower on hot

Repeat three times daily

Give Robitussin DM at 1 teaspoon per 20 pounds three times daily for 2-3 days

That should sort it out for you

Update me tomorrow night

Okay?
