We had little moment with Ellie this AM, she woke up and was trying to clear something out of her throat (which is Normal for her) as she has a pocket on her throat , but this AM it just seemed she could not just get it all clear.

SOOOO - Ellie's house has forced Hot air, and a Woodstove for heat (more dry air), so this mama was thinking it was just some phlem build up, and had daddy wrestle her down, and mama gave her a shot of Lemon, and THANKFULLY that did the trick, but keeping an eye on her

BUT where did I read this kind of information, HERE on EBN. :love: :love: :love:

Years ago when "we" had a woodstove for heat, we kept a pot of water on the stove to put some humidity in the air.
Yes the lemon was on years ago-happy that you remembered and that you came to Ellie's rescue!

We have a fire place n last winter I bought a humidifier. Heating a house plus a fire place is way too dry. Worth buying. 👍

OMG yes, it was during Very early morning as we were just waking up!! :whew::whew: and her vet told us years ago forced dry air heat will cause them have thicker mucus, causing them to "cough" a bit more. So this mama gave the lemon a shot, and The lemon juice worked great, and helped quickly
