Hi, my name is***** I have a 11/12 year old female Yorkshire terrier. About 7 years ago, I suffered an accident, and couldn't take her for walks, and so she hasn't been to a vet since, because we don't take her out.
My middle son, recently got a dog from a pound, which was diagnosed with kennel cough. He had introduced it to my younger son's dog, who happened to come round and visit us. He has now been diagnosed with kennel cough.
Tilly, my yorkie, has started dry coughing/retching. We have given her honey, (which she is not keen on, she will only take it with a treat) There are financial implications about going to a vet, and what i have read, suggests that she will get better of her own accord. But maybe she needs a cough suppressant.
She is a bit overweight, and seems a bit sorry for herself, but otherwise OK. She has made a couple of mistakes, with loose bowels.
