NeedlenoseJake Posted December 30, 2015 Share Posted December 30, 2015 My husband took Jake to the dog park late last night (always when he's the only one there). It was pretty cold, but Jake never seems to mind. When he got back, Jake started coughing and acting like he was trying to vomit but nothing came up. Of course we thought of bloat as that is one of the main symptoms. We brought him in even though he seemed otherwise okay. Vet said it almost certainly wasn't bloat because of the way he was acting. They tried to do a chest x-ray, but Jake wasn't having it and tried to bite the tech. Then the tech reprimanded us for not letting them know he doesn't like being restrained (First of all, what dog does? Second of all, they didn't ask!) They did do a CBC and that was normal. He got a steroid shot and some hydrocodone cough medicine. Overall $260 (would have been $500 with x-ray) and one sleepy dog. He seems perfectly fine today. Vet thinks it is/was bronchitis. I hope that's the end of it! Photo just because Quote Photographer in Phoenix, AZ www.northmountainphoto.com Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
