This little guy has been a bit under the weather lately. It started last Sunday night. I had just turned off the TV and was about to fall asleep when Sam jumped up and started coughing, wretching, and belching. The fit lasted about 5-10 seconds and then everything was fine. Ten minutes later, it happened again. And then it happened again. At this point, I got a little concerned and got online. The first thing I came across was bloat. I was terrified! I called Anthony numerous times with no answer and finally called the station in a panic. He calmed me down and assured me it was nothing. By the time I was done talking to Anthony, he was fine and playing with Frankie.
The next night, nothing. But then it started back up Tuesday night, not as bad though. I did more research and decided that it wasn't bloat and everything I read said if the cough continued for 5 days to see a vet. Well, the coughing continued off and on. So, on Friday I took him into the vet and he said he had bronchitis and tracheitis (or something like that). So, just like when I had bronchitis, he's on an antibiotic and a steriod. Unlike me, he takes his with peanut butter. And thank goodness the coughing has gotten better and so has my sleeping!
