Customer Question
Hi I have a...

Hi I have a red nose pit bull. His name is***** is 16 yrs old. He has been coughing like gasping, vomiting with episodes of phlegm, severe weight loss, loss of appetite

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. This sounds like it might be serious. I'll let the Veterinarian know what's going on ASAP. Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Chico?

I have tied albuterol to help Chico breath but not much help. He has eaten a little of his dry food with warm water to soften it. Lots of icy cold water. He is in a warm area. I ve washed his blankets
