I just bought a 17 month old Toy Poodle from a lady that smoked. The dog reaked of smoke when I got him but what has me worried is he has a cough that sounds just like someone that has smoked for years......what can I do for him? I've got him on healthy food but what else can I do? Has anyone had a dog that was exposed to lots of smoking and did they have any problems from it? Any advice would be great! Thanks
The dog will probably cough for a little while because it is not used to a smoke-free environment, so just provide it with fresh air, water, and good food, and of course excersize, and the dog should feel better and cease coughing. If it doesn't stop, call your vet. Give it time, however. Heart CP
Congrats on your new addition! Definitely ask about the cough when you take him for his checkup, just in case it is caused by something other than his former owner's smoking. Hope he feels better soon!
