Hi there,

There are a lot of things that can cause coughing. I will need a bit more information.

- Is Otis vaccinated?

- Any boarding, grroming, doggie daycare, or exposure to puppies in the past couple weeks?

- Is he on Heartworm prevention?

- Any heart murmur?

- Any exposure to fumes, cleaners, cigarette smoke, or other aerosols?

- Other medical issues?

Thanks,
Dr. Paul
