Hi, Welcome to Just Answer. I'm Chris, a small animal Vet based in the UK. I am reviewing your question and will get back to you as soon as possible

Expert:  Dr Chris replied 15 days ago.

Sorry to hear this. How old is Bobbie? Does he have any known medical conditions? Did he see a vet about the cough or have any medications?

Customer: replied 15 days ago.
Hi Bobbie is 4.5yrs old and to date has been as fit as a fiddle.

Hi what did I just pay £5 for then? Sorry to be penny pinching but I do not have a penny in income for the last 2 months waiting for universal credit to click in. I would like a proper consultation please. If this is not possible let me know.
Expert:  Dr Chris replied 15 days ago.

By a proper consultation do you mean a visit to the vets? I'm afraid this is just an online question and answer service. I can certain give you information and advice about your dog but I cannot examine your animal, give a definitive diagnosis, perform investigations or prescribe medication.

Can I be of any further assistance or would you like me to close the question for you?
