    Default Winston sounds phlegmy... allergies?!!

    I don't know if this happens everywhere or only in the south, but anyhoo... every damn early fall they cut the tobacco leaves down and then they smoke them in the barns. In the morning you can see a fog everywhere & you can really smell the tobacco burning... It gets my allergies going every year, but I noticed yesterday that Winston sounded phlegmy. It got bad yesterday he was outside playing & he threw up... I gave him some benadryl last night, and again this morning. Is that all I can do for him? I have all the windows shut, but honestly he will have to go outside at times. I will take him to the vet if need be, but I just don't know if he can do anything for him...

    I wish I knew the answer for you. I am sure someone who knows more than me will be along soon. Hopefully you and Winston feel better soon.
    Bulldogs are like potato chips. You just can't stop with one.

    Squirting lemon juice in his mouth can help break up some of that phlegm in the back of his throat. I can't imagine how you guys deal with that- I would die.

    It's HORRIBLE!!! Every fall we go thru this... UGH!!! I've just never had a dog that seems bothered by it too...

    Actually it started out grass (of course LOL) mixed w/some food... then of course the white phlegm... I've been giving him Benedryl the last 2 days & he sounds a lot better!!! Should I just keep giving him the Benedryl?!!

    Ah, memories! White, grassy, foamy vomit.... Yes, it really is the only option, unless you keep him indoors except for potty, which we had to do a lot with Nithscke too

    UGH... well at least it seems to be working!!! Winston LOVES to go outside, so I guess he will be riding the Benedryl TRAIN!!! Poor Nithscke... was he just allergic to outdoors or everything?!!

    His environmental allergy list was very long.... all types of grass, molds, weeds, certain bushes and a few trees. Banks is just as bad, if not worse, but her reaction is hives and red face.... Nitschke was what you are dealing with Winston.

    Poor Winston!! Give him hugs for me...We only take Sheldon out for potty breaks unless its really really nice out then we let him play outside for a bit other wise its potty and right back into the house. My son takes him out to play with him in the evenings sometimes if its nice but its been so humid lately that you could cut the air with a knife.

    R.I.P. Duece Man 9-13-14 Gone but not forgotten, always in our hearts! Till we meet again over the Bridge, Mommy misses you.

    Did you get a blood test w/ Nitschke? Wondering if it's worth it...
