@AbbyDabbyDoodleBug:  my dog got asthmatic bronchitus about a month ago – as far as doing anything for her, other than giving her the meds, i just made sure that she wasnt outside for extended periods of time, and that the house was warm – she stopped coughing in a few weeks.

yep! they’re a lot like human colds. limit time spent outside. if he’s not eating feed 1 part boiled chicken (no seasoning) to 2 parts rice.

Yes animals can get URIs or Upper Respritory Infections very easy. If you have any other animals you will want to reduce time together because it is contagious.

If the amoxicillian works then your pup should start feeling better in no time, if it’s viral though it’ll take a couple of days.  Just feed her (maybe even spoil her a little and give her some chicken or something really tasty to encourage her to eat) and make sure she stays hydrated and get some rest.  She might have the urge to act hyper as soon as she feels better but probably best to keep her calm for an extra day or two after she starts acting normal.
