I updated this in his Erns not well thread, but should have posted another.
By the time I got to the vet he was very slow. He had stopped coughing and didn't cough when the vet tried to get him to.
They think he has a blockage, as she felt something so gave him so pearls so if he doesn't poop they will show up in the xray. He hasn't pooped today.
It isn't KC.
He has an inflammed trachea which could have been caused by many things...i.e.grass seed, bug from his head under the water, (long shot) or irritation from whatever he had eaten.
They said if he deteriorated in any way take him out immediately. From past experience we know he can down hill very quickly. I almost took him out this afternoon as he was air licking which means he has a problem with his gut, but he settled and been asleep all day. Not coughing much.
They are going to do some heart and thyroid tests if the coughing continues.
I hope the vet can find the problem and that he's back to being Erns soon.
Poor guy. I hope this resolves itself soon, Chris.
Rally, Erns! Rally!
