Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you today. I do apologize that your question was not answered before. Different experts come online at various times; I just came online, read about your situation, and wanted to help.

Again I do apologize that my colleagues could not aid you sooner. If you would still like assistance, can you tell me:

How long has he had the cough?

When was he last wormed and what did you use?

Is he in contact with other sheep? Is it on pasture or in a shed?

Any fever, nasal discharge, or change to his breathing?
