Thursday morning I awoke to Cooter coughing/retching. He wasn't getting anything "up". Then he started to get "up" some mucus looking stuff. So, off to the vet we go. He didn't have a temp., and his lungs were clear. The vet said he had bronchitis, caused by a bacterial infection. He's on Prendisone and an antibiotic, twice a day for 10 days. He is sleeping alot, and drinking alot, but not coughing anymore. Give all your well hounds a kiss, and your sick hounds an extra big kiss!
