Katie has a cough
« on: May 23, 2016, 10:49:03 AM »

Katie has started with a dry cough... its humid here, no new hay, I de wormed her when she first came home... I am a bit concerned... Suggestions?
No nasal discharge, no temp...eating drinking pooing fine.... seems alert and cheery...
She coughs a cpl of times then a while later will couch again.... Never seen this before!

I would just keep monitoring her the way you are, looking for symptoms to become more pronounced. 

Watch for choke symptoms as well.

Praying all will be fine !   ;pray

Thanks Diane, she has only done it a few times today, so maybe its related to all the rain weve had.... :-\

I agree with Diane, not muc to be be done other than monitor her as you are. Sending prayers it is nothing.  ;pray

It's good it finally showed itself for what it was!  At least it is easily treatable, and she should return to good health soon!!  I'm very relieved!
