    Default A cold with sneezing and congestion - any suggestions?

    Chancho is sneezing and has a cough with what sounds like phlegm. Any suggestions with some tried and true home remedies? Thanks Everyone!

    I have no solutions for this. My pups havent had a cold really. Their sneezing tends to be allergic reactions and seasonally maybe that could play a part? I have no help on what to give for colds. Just be sure it doesnt turn into pneumonia or something scary. Chancho is a cutie by the way. How old?

    I would be checking for any behavioral changes and take temperature. Hot steamy shower but I am concerned maybe a vet trip is in order.... Hope all is okay

    I am thinking this may need a vet trip! Anytime a pup has a cough it could turn to puenomia. He may need antibiotics!

    My pup got a nasty upper respiratory infection @ 12 weeks. Snotty nose, coughing and just feeling yucky. Antibiotics and TLC...and he was good as new in just a day or too. Don't wait if at all possible for vet treatment, because these guys do not deal well with mucus and phlegm. A squirt of lemon juice will help break up the throat mucas and I also gave benadryl to help with symptoms until we could get him to the vet. Hope your baby is better soon!

    He's 16 weeks - just had his rablies shot and that's when he started the sneezing. No change in appetite whatsoever, but slept quite a bit today....

    When I first got Watson he had a cold, runny nose, sneezing, coughing, and reverse sneezing. The coughing part was the worse, seemed like he was struggling with it. I took him to the vet for that and the vet gave us some antibiotics for a couple of weeks, namely to treat a hotspot that he had but he said it would help with the cold if he had a bacterial infection. So he got better quickly after that. I would recommend having the vet look at you bully.
