Customer Question
My dog has started...

My dog has started shaking. She has had kennel cough and has been occasionally coughing a bit and wheezing, but she just began shaking and then coughed up some vomit.

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

I'm not totally sure, but I don't think so. There wasn't anything strange in her vomit and I can't think of anything she would have gotten into thus evening.

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

Beesly, she's 1

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Beesly?

Not that I can think of! She's a Great Dane x English Mastiff if that helps.

I'm sorry that your question wasn't answered in a timely manner. Please let me know if you still need help. May I have an update on Beesly, please?

Can you tell me when her symptoms of kennel cough first arose and if she had been treated with antibiotics and/or a cough suppressant? I suspect that coughing resulted in a terminal gag which can induce regurgitation of ingesta in the stomach. Shaking is a nonspecific sign but often indicates pain, anxiety, or both.
