    Hi, you've already been given great advice, and I agree it's probably due to him being overheated. I know in Europe not many people have AC, as its not usually hot enough to warrant it. Most people open their windows. My Father is from Germany, and my Mother is Norwegian, and I spent many summers in Norway and Germany growing up, and everyone just opened the windows. I would plug in a fan and put it near Bifi when it's hot, and that should help to keep him cool. Maybe the constant wetting him down is giving him a chill and he caught a cold. Keep an eye on him, and if it doesn't improve, I would take him to the vet, to rule out a virus or kennel cough. I hope he feels better soon, and it's nothing serious. It doesn't sound like a obstruction to me. Please keep us posted on how Bifi is doing.

    Yes, excellent idea from Phil, on hot days, put a plate of ice down
    in front of a fan, works great! Hoping Bifi just got too hot and is
    to his old self by now. Please keep us informed~GOD bless y'all!

    I wonder if that home made AC unit could be made in Germany? Or something similar?

    It was posted on EBN and I'm going to try it because it gets so hot in AZ, here's the link: http://www.thegoodsurvivalist.com/ho...-easy-to-make/

Is it possible that he coughs up some of his lunch (I'm hoping he keeps his lunch down) with some of the phlegm/slime? I am now very scared that it's obstruction. Although i couldn't think of the possible cause of the obstruction. All of his toys are still intact. It's holiday today so no vets open. We would go tomorrow. He still has his appetite but because it's pretty warm 33°C (91°F) he's been panting and sleeping alot so i couldn't really tell if he's lethargic. i don't want to engage him to play just to see if he has the energy for it.

    I think it is coughing but if it is why would there be stomach contents in his output? i gave him honey this morning and honey with a little lemon juice and water near his bowl and he drinks it. i think it helps because he no longer wakes up just to cough. input would be greatly appreciated! his snoring right now just like the rest of the day and yesterday. worried sick!!!
    I'm sorry your going though this with Bifi, I'm of little help but when my guys get hot and start panting I give them ice cubes to cool them off.

    Thank you everyone for all your well wishes and good advice. really appreciate it ^^.

    A little update. Bifi is not overheated i know i sound defensive but he really is not . I pride myself for being an overprotective mom. My reputation here for being a crazy bulldog owner is known far and wide.

    He has been coughing since the other night, the whole day yesterday and today though a little less now. We have been to the vet this morning and he said he thinks Bifi cought something in his throat. Both lungs are clear and his lymphnodes are not swollen. The vet asked if Bifi has been swimming or if he was, at one point, wet and i said i wet him to cool him down because of the heat. Vet thinks it could be the cause or it could also be a peice of stick that got in his throat. or it could also be allergies. so he gave Bifi a shot for allergies and he said if no improvement we should get back Friday. Told him he might've also gotten curious and tasted the cat litter, he said it's a possibility too. or it could be the new kitty passing something to Bifi .

    Bifi is coughing a little less since the vet visit so i hope whatever the vet gave him works. As i don't wanna put him through antibiotics again.

    Thank you for the update! We all know what a great bully parent you are and it sounds like you and your vet are on top of this. Hoping the allergy shot will help ease the coughing and that little Bifi will be back to his normal self very soon. Give the cutie a big hug from us!!

    Yup the antibiotic has finally kicked in. Coughing and reverse sneezing are still there but otherwise he is so much better now. Thank you very much!
