HOME REMEDIES DOG COUGH:
Pediatric robitussen is being used for puppies to help soothe throat tissues that have become sore due to the inflammation of the throat that occurs from the infection. Just like we would do for our children cough syrups are being used on pets. Certain herbal remedies are also being used to expel mucus. One is plantango lanceolata . Another herbal remedy being used to clear mucus is Bryonia C6 which is also reported to be able to soothe sore throat tissues. For small puppies many people also use honey to soothe irritated throats and treat dog cough at night. The honey can be mixed in the petâ€™s water bowl. Most report using this first before the cough syrups. Run a humidifier to help keep the air moist or boil a pan of water to add moisture. Give your pet a vitamin supplement to boost their immune system and practice good nutrition. Some people are reporting using Vitamin C but be cautious here as too much has been known to cause irritable bowel syndrome. Loosen collars â€“ your petâ€™s throat is sore and irritated.

Unfortunately, many people fail to take this behavior seriously, believing that an aggressive small dog won't be able to cause much harm. Professional dog trainers do take this phenomenon seriously, however, and recommend that dog owners do the same. Fortunately, small dog syndrome can be successfully mitigated with proper training and follow-up....
The Worthiness of a Pet
I believe it essential that all children have a pet. I would prefer that they have a cat, a horse, or a dog, but I realize that animals such as these are not always possible because of size and space and allergies. These three, my favorites, have filled my life with goodness and wonder. They have also taught me about kindness, loyalty, and loss. My emotions become tied to my pets and as they sense this, they become linked to me. My husband says that this is because I feed them, but I think that our bond is deeper than that....
