Veterinary questions? Ask a Vet for Answers ASAP
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
Sorry to hear of this with Mitzie. The symptoms you describe could be consistent with an upper respiratory infection (kennel cough), often this is viral in nature and self resolves after a couple of days without treatment, but can be very contagious to other dogs.
You can try feeding a wet diet and offering a little honey in warm water to ease symptoms. Your vet may also prescribe an anti inflammatory medication. Antibiotics are usually not required.
In the event of symptoms persisting more than a few days or becoming lethargic/off food or has any changes to her breathing then she should be seen by a vet straight away.
I hope that answers your question? Please let me know if you need any further help or advice.
