    I'm Concerned....

    Advertisements
    Ok, yes I know for the best answers I need to take my dog to the vet...

    But, I wanted to get your opinion if you think this is something serious.

    My dog has been coughing quite a bit lately. Its not a hacking cough, its like a soft breathless cough. And he drinks SO MUCH water. If you put a bowl of water in front of him, he will drink the ENTIRE bowl!!

    He is NOT an outside dog, so he's not exposed to the heat or anything like that. He's up to date on all his vaccines.

    I'm beginning to think something might be wrong with him...In all honesty, it is VERY hard for me to take time off of work, so that's why I haven't taken him to the Vet yet. I work very far away from the base here, so I would have to take an afternoon off in order to take him in.

    My other concern is...if I do take him into the Vet, and they tell me something is wrong with him...then my DH will just tell me to put him down. He's not willing to pay for any sort of advanced medical treatment for a pet.

    Do you think his symptoms sound like something serious?

    Some family friends of mine have a dog who has a REALLY bad cough... he just wheezes and coughs and his is from some bad allergies and such... if it's just a little cough he could have spring hayfever or something.. animals get allergies just like humans do. The water could be for sinus crap and all that. That's probably the best case you could be facing! I would take him in when you can get a chance and just ask them. You could also call them to see what they recommend that you could try before having to take him in. We had to give our puppy benadryl for her allergies on her face and skin and stuff and it was that easy to fix. I hope you get it figured out! I hate seeing puppies suffer! We are softies though and spend an arm and leg for our babies! I hope you can figure it out and it doesn't cost much girl!!
