    Default White phlegm

    Patrick's been sick for a week with what the vet called an upper respiratory infection. He's been on clavamox all week. Today he started coughing up cloudy phlegm.

    Any ideas? We're going to the vet tonight

    it looks like foam. he may have gagged when he was coughing and it came up.

    Agreed... Too much mucus in the throat will cause this

    I agree with the others, the good thing is it's white, and not brown.

    The vet put him on a different antibiotic.

    X-rays showed negative for pneumonia but showed he has a smaller than normal trachea.
