    Default Please kelp or am going to murder my vet !!! Ha.

    Hello every1.

    I have a 14 week old bully and she from about 8-9 weeks has had this ruttly cough. It sounds like us humans when we have cold !! Some days she will have it others she won't !!

    She doesn't pant or get it when she's running or playing so I no its not Asthma or out.

    We have taken her to the vet on two separate occasions. We got cough medicine and antionflamatreys and antibiotics and we told it should clear in a week or so !!

    It did for about 3-5 days. So we took her back and got more steroids and antibiotics and antionflamatreys!!!

    She has now finished them and we have left it a week or so but she's no better !! She sounds like she has mucus in her throat. . Poor. Coco!!

    She is fine in every otherway she's eating drinking playing sleeping !! And chasing birds .

    Please if any one can help or advise it would be great. Sorry rant over . -imageuploadedbytapatalk1337240065-695274-jpg

    Goodmorning Hun, where do you live? I'm just wondering if your using a regular vet or if you've found one that knows bulldogs? I'm also thinking maybe hayfever, or allergies, in which case antibiotics won't work...and steroids wil only work while she's taking them....what's the pollen count like there at the moment..and most crucially what is she eating..is it coco that's on Eukaneuba? I forget...I know you asked about food choices. xx

    Sometimes those medications take time to work. That being said, if you don't have confidence in your vet --- since you want to kill him/her, I'm guessing you don't care for their advice so much? --- why don't you get a second medical opinion? Other folks will have some good suggestions for you here for sure - but it's awfully hard to diagnose an illness on the internet. I'd wait to switch foods until you have a healthier, more robust dog. Too many changes at once isn't good for a pup.

    I have found 2 approved Bulldog vets in Cumbria...one in Carlisle the other Cleator Moore?? I have no idea if they are close cos I'm stuck here in the Manchester area

    You can usually find pollen counts on the weather sites.

    That she isnt chesty or having trouble when she is playing and running around makes me think more Allergies, but I'm not there and you should always get a vets advise . I feed Lucy James Wellbeloved and after a few different tries with the flavours we seem to be onto a winner with Lamb and vegetable
    @karenben is one of our Raw feeders she lives nr Blackpool and has had many problems with her beautiful Annie and Allergies. She will have some great advise for you too. You can give Benadryl to her to relieve symptoms whilst you find a cure....hmmm trying to think who can advise on dosage...er maybe Karen again. If not we can find someone who can help there xx

    But I would strongly suggest you find a vet used to dealing with Bullies...regular vets are great for everyday stuff but for anything else you really need someone who knows the breed. Maybe your breeder has someone she can suggest if they are close to you.

    Oh gosh I hope she is ok...if you think its phlegm in her throat try squirting lemon juice in there it breaks up the phlegm so she can breath...if your video is of her breathing take it to show the vet xx

    Please let us know that the vet says this time. We tend to worry a lot here.
