GSP...eight y/o...eating and drinking well, and looks heavier..Not choking ..but coughing...like he trying to get something out of his chest/throat or esophagus...scratches his throat on left side , as maybe he feels something in it..skin is irritated...my question is could he have exhaled a foreign body into lungs and trying to cough it out? Or would that have passed through his intestines...could something be enlarged in throat although he eats and drinks well?...he is also agitated and growls at times which is new for him...thing he needs an egd or chest X-ray? Which first since money is an issue.....thanks for your helpView Thread
Also, my husband is saying, the dog will need to learn !... He keeps putting the dog back in his house and now wants to get a small zapper. When he sees the dog starting to pull at fencing/wire, he wants to zap him, for negative re-I forcemeat..I think that is nuts..View Thread
Thank you so much..in regards to the other dog, they are pals. Moe however is 13 years old and just sleeps all day, and lost his hearing..calming meds unfortunately don't work for long hours..I may have to video tape situation..although, I pretended to go to work, put him in his coup, and he just starts to pull at the front of the coop with his teeth and doesn't quit..there is absolutely nothing getting in his house..He was at vets last week for a hematoma on his year induced by trauma, attempting to get out, once again..so I don't think this is a medical issue. Will the vet behaviorist be able to tell if this is a psychosis ?View Thread
