Sneezing & Wheezing Can't Post

Hiyes!

Gizmo has been sneezing quite often these days.. just wondering if he is alrite? He seems hyper, no sign of illness. But i do noticed that he breathes heavily and sometimes i can hear him wheezing too. Are these normal for shih tzu pup?? *giz is 4 mths old now*

yea tht is the only way to do it, and don' use those old mercury glass type, get the plastic digital one, it will be handy to check if ur dog has fever from time to time.

Re: [all] Sneezing & Wheezing [In reply to] Can't Post

got this online....

'A dogs normal body temperature ranges between 100.5 Fahrenheit (38.1C) and 102.5 Fahrenheit (39.2C).

A dogs temperature below 99 degrees Fahrenheit (37.2C) and temperatures above 104 degrees Fahrenheit (40C) are considered extremely serious and your dog should be brought to a veterinarian immediately."

just don't use glass thermometer!!! and put some lub like vaseline before inserting, don't put soap ah!!

get another person to hold the dog and keep the butt up, hold the thigh /rump with both hands, 2 minutes is enuff.

dog's body temperature........dont know much, but only know that if the butt temperature is higher than 39celcius that's mean the dog have 'high body temperature' but it doesnt mean 'fever', because if the animal struggle / after exercise / stress / put under hot sun, u may expect higher body temperature (but they will eventually able to regulate to the normal body temperature if they are healthy- around 38celcius), ermmmmmmm usually digital thermometer come with one function where it will beeps when the temperature become constant.....usually within 1 minute, and i do agree using the old glass thermometer with mercury is kind of dangerous when handle by inexperience person lah.........

about the sneezing and wheezing matters, anyone heard about short nose breed e.g. shih tzu, pekingese which have some kind of inherited problem related to airway?????

Izzit flu in dog have to be always on antibiotic like human? while, flu usually caused by virus and antibiotic doesnt kill virus but only due with the secondary bac infection .......
