just adopted a puppy from the shelter. She was doing great except this cough that is just getting worst. We’re going to take her to the vet tomorrow to have it checked out because I think it is kennel cough- although- she is vomiting up nothing, just as if she thinks vomitting might help her little throat. All of that aside, until or during treatment I would like some natural ways to soothe the throat irritation. I read you can use honey (which I don’t have on hand) and was wondering if any of you had good ideas? If so, please include a link or dosages for a 4 month old puppy and I will look into it. Thank you! I hate seeing this poor baby suffer so. She’s finally sleeping and not coughing at the moment.
It turns out Mocha does not have Kennel Cough…but she does have something. The vet told me I can give her half a tablet of Pepsid AC to keep her from vomitting once a day and Robittussin (sp) for cough suppressant. The vet gave her a shot for today to stop the vomitting and she stopped coughing. Thanks for the input from all of you. = )
