so I finally brought home my new puppy, Maebee. She is very sweet and obedient and I couldn't be happier. I have one question tho. Today she started coughing, and sometimes she gags and spits up...has this ever happened to you? What should I do?
Shes been home for 2 days. I plan on taking her in a week to get her stitches out, should i go earlier?
As I recall Maebee was coming from a rescue organization. Probably are stitches from spaying.Originally Posted by MilesMom
If the coughing and gagging continues, I would call the vet. I'd be afraid that coughing might hurt the incision, or worse, cause the stitches to come out.
Good luck w/ your new baby. Post pictures when you can!
Weird that you post this, because I am taking Petals to the vet today. She started to cough just like you describe on Friday. I had a puppy with Kennel Cough and it reminds me of that. From what I remember it is Kennel Cough. I told the doctor and she wants to see Petals. I will let you know what my doctor says
Well it was what I thought. Petals has Kennel cough. We got some antibiotics and got sent home with a "don't let your dog go around any other dogs" warning. Petals isn't coughing as much now but we have about 2 more weeks of medicine before she can go to the park again.
