I agree too. Here is some more background info anyway:
The symptoms he has been experiencing have been coughing, lethargy (moving around much more slowly, unable to jump up in back seat of car or onto his bed) and loss of appetite. The symptoms started showing up in the beginning of January 2017. I brought him to emergency vet/referral clinic and ended up requesting antibiotics (Naxcel injection followed by 6 day round of clavamox). After 3rd day of antibiotics, appetite and energy returned but he was still experiencing the cough at varying degrees of intensity and with varying frequency.
I made appointment with the referral vet about 10 days later. Dog was still coughing intermittently but since his energy and appetite had returned, I agreed to just get some recommended Hydrocodone to help with the cough.
But then two days later, lethargy and appetite issues returned.
Update 2/11: Have made appointments for blood work and x-rays. Dog seems to be doing well except for coughing. Eating and energy looks ok for his age. One additional thing that I notice is that one of his ears seems to be limp. He has floppy ears but as he alerts to something they both normally retract and rise a bit. Just today I am noticing that only his right ear is doing that while the other is not. Any additional thoughts would be appreciated.
