    Default Lemon Juice

    Daphne has a lot of phlegm. So much in fact that the first few days of it, I kept getting up to check the coffee maker because I thought I heard it brewing coffee and I knew I wasn't making a pot. It was Daphne walking around in the kitchen.

    Do I use just regular lemon juice in the bottle? Or, I do have fresh lemons I could use.

    Do I dilute it?

    How much?

    Do I just shove it in her mouth?

    Just one time?

    Is she going to hate me forever after?

    Thanks in Advance

    I usually just squirt a small amount in their mouth, and I just use the juice in the squeeze bottle... she probably won't like it, but it does break up the phlegm. Have you ever talked to her vet about it?

    I haven't called the vet yet. Everything else is perfectly normal, fat and sassy. I thought I'd try the lemon juice first. Plus, it's not all the time. She doesn't do it when she sleeps. Every once in a while she tries to hack it up. Otherwise, it's off again, on again.

    Thanks for the response.

    Yes, just a quick squirt down the back of her mouth should do. She won't hate you, lol I've only used it a few times, but I just sqeeze the lemon bottle itself right into his mouth. Tyson just gave me a weird look like "wth" LOL

    My whole heart, Tyson.
    Whoever said diamonds are a girls best friend, obviously never owned a Bulldog.

    I just did the lemon juice thing by giving Daphne a squirt in the back of her mouth. She didn't do anything but shake her head a bit and then drink some water. Then, after she slipped water from her mouth all over the clean kitchen floor and within 30 seconds she stopped gurgling and percolating. Next she went to sleep. She's snoring like a lumberjack, but she isn't sounding like the coffee maker. It seems like a minor miracle to me.

    I did this when foot was suffering from overheat and couldn't believe the difference but I didn't have the bottle I had to squeeze a fresh lemon, now I have the bottle on standby and will always keep one.
