Everyone in my house seems to be getting sick with a sever cold. Even my poor little chi baby seems to be under the wather. She is coughing and reverse sneezing ( for those who don't know what that is, here are two links: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1UyBr...ogs/page1.aspx
Also, she is sneezing a ton, especially at night. She is running around and playing normally, and acting otherwise okay, but the coughing and sneezing, while it must irritate her, is driving me bonkers! She sneezes under the covers in the middle of the night, which is gross, to say the least.
I would normally take her to the vet at the smallest sign of something being wrong (I get made fun of by family as, literally, the one who takes her dogs to the vet any time they sneeze.) but I just had to rush my other dog into the vet on Monday for x-rays for a possible bowel obstruction after the braniac ate a leather belt. He is okay, thank goodness, everything was passing through according to the x-rays. So now I am completely strapped for cash and cannot go running to the vet again. Just to get the other dog to the vet, my boyfriend had to take out an advance on his paycheck through the bank. We didn't have any money for that, but we couldn't just wait and worry and not take the dog in. He needed to be seen, so we did what we had to do. We cannot take out another paycheck advance until next week though, and my CareCredit is maxed out from my big foreign-object eating dog's surgery last year.
So, heres my question(s). Can chi's get the same colds as humans? How can I make her feel better? I feel so bad for her! Is there anything I can do or give to her? Please help make my baby girl feel better!
