|So in the middle of the night last night, Lucy started coughing and dry heaving, as if she were going to throw up (as if she were a cat with a hairball, is the best way to describe it!). Only nothing came up, and she promptly went back to sleep. I dismissed it, but then today, when I was home at lunch, she did it once more.
Just over a week ago (June 5) she had her second booster and bordetella vaccines, so that, combined with the fact that she's only met a few dogs in our neighborhood, doesn't lead me to believe it's kennel cough.
Lucy has allergies - she gets itchy, especially after playing in the grass. Could the cough be related? Though the fact that the cough just started, while the itching has been going on since we brought her home is a bit odd. Could it be trauma related? She's just a baby, so she's not "heeling" yet and while she's ok on the leash, she tends to pull as hard as she can when another dog (or a bird) is in sight. I'm totally paranoid about hurting her neck and this cough is only making that worry worse!
Obviously, if it persists or worsens, I will take her to the vet, but I was just wondering if anyone else had experience with something like this?
