What home remedy can I give my pup for coughing? Lot’s of dog owners have asked this question. If your pup is coughing, it’s important to know what the cause of the cough is. The vet can help you with this by determining whether there’s a medical problem and prescribing medications that may be effective for treating it. The vet will also know if your dog has other symptoms that warrant further testing or treatment, such as fever and loss of appetite. However, there are some home remedies to give your pup for coughing. Let’s check them out!
Make sure your dog is getting plenty of water.
If your dog is coughing, it can be hard to know when he needs water. Your pup may not want to get up from wherever he’s been resting in front of the TV and walk over to his bowl—but if you wait too long, he might not make it back before you run out of snacks for dinner! Coughing dogs often need more than just plain old water; they need something that actually quenches their thirst. If a certain food or drink doesn’t work for your furry friend, try adding some liquid herbal supplement like apple cider vinegar or ginger tea packets into the mix instead: these ingredients help soothe sore throats and ease congestion in general.
If all else fails and your dog still seems desperate for some liquid refreshment (and even though it’s been several hours since her last sip), try pouring some warm water over her tongue instead of giving her a drink directly from the tap (a trick my husband taught me). This technique helps open up tight bronchial tubes by increasing airflow within them while also stimulating saliva production—which means both will work together toward healing those pesky coughs!
Try a little honey and lemon.
- Honey and lemon is a good cough suppressant.
- You can add 1 teaspoon of honey to 2 teaspoons of water, mix well, then give your pup 2-3 drops once a day (you can increase or decrease this based on how much he or she likes the taste).
- Make sure to follow up with an allergy treatment if needed, but this is great for when they’re sick!
Let your dog breathe in the steam from a vaporizer or humidifier.
- Turn on the appliance and let it run for 10-15 minutes before turning it off. This will help remove any dust and allergens that are in the air, making it easier for your pup to breathe better.
- Once you have turned off your appliance, leave him alone while he gets his time to deal with whatever is bothering him, but don’t forget about him! Don’t leave him alone for too long—you don’t want him falling asleep on top of something hot or cold because he didn’t feel like moving around much after being exposed to such high temperatures for so long!
- Lozenges are small pieces of sugar that dissolve in the mouth.
- They can be used to help with coughing, sneezing and runny noses.
- Some of the best lozenges to try include Bayer’s Aspirin-Free Cough Relief Soft Chews for Dogs or Petromalt Honey & Lemon with Vitamin C, which are both available at Amazon.com. You can also find other good options online if you don’t want to order from a retailer directly; just search for “lozenges” in your favorite search engine!
In conclusion, the best thing to do is to take your dog to a vet. The doctor will be able to tell you what is wrong with your pup and hopefully get him feeling better in no time.
