Hello and thanks for trusting me to help you and Orero today. I am a licensed veterinarian with over 25 years experience and would be happy work with you but need a bit more information in order to better assist you if you don't mind.

How long has this cough been going on?

Does Orero go to places where he is exposed to other dogs (grooming salon, doggy day care, kennels)?

Has Orero been vaccinated for kennel cough?

Is Orero on heartworm prevention medication?

Thanks and I will respond further after you reply. There may be a slight delay while I formulate and type a thorough response or I may be offline, but if so, I will respond as soon as I am able.
