    Default Coughing?!

    Hi every bully! Butler has been "coughing" he hasn't done this before except for a couple times to dislodge some phlegm. He is coughing a lot and it makes him spit up. He threw up last night's dinner this morning, and he's been throwing up white foam that is sometimes more mucus laden than others. He's hungry-but I'm not feeding him cause I can tell his throat is irritated from all the coughing and stuff. He won't eat ice cubes and he hasn't had any water all morning besides a couple eyedroppers full that I forced him to take. Have you experienced anything similar? I can't attach a video from my phone so it may be hard to understand me.

    Perhaps he is having an allergic reaction to something that is making him cough, are his eyes really red too? If you are worried about the lack of hydration maybe you could give him some food with water in it?

    I have only experienced coughing twice with my bullies.

    Firstly, it was Maggie and it turned out that she had aspirated on some food and had pneumonia

    The second was kennel cough that Bella caught when she was at the vets to be spayed.

    Hopefully, it is going to be none of these two!!

    Oh jeez! I hope it's not those either. He hasn't been to the vet or even had exposure to other dogs. He hasn't eaten anything out of the ordinary (that I'm aware of) he never goes outside except to potty and he is supervised the whole time. His temperature is fine. His eyes and gums and tongue are all normal in color. The weather changed pretty drastically here this last week, I'm praying its just a doggy cold? He hasn't coughed in about an hour now, so I'll continue to watch him closely. Poor baby. I wish it were me that was sick.

    If it doesn't clear up fast it's time for a trip to the vet. If he has a cold or worse, treatment is needed. These guys can't breath as is.

    have you tried a flavored popsicle or ice cubes made with pedialite (sp) to keep him hydrated? Hope its something that passes quickly.

    I'm freezing some veggie stock cubes. It's a really dry cough too (besides the occasional mucus)-I didn't mention that before.

    Is the cough almost a " honking" noise?

    If he is still coughing by tomorrow I'd take him to the vet.

    Oh wow @sheila, I just watched your video on FB, In my opinion, I would definately take Butler to the vet, that cough does not sound good.
