spot on and dog coughing
I have used a spot on/pour on which you buy from the supermarkets for my dog. A month ago I started and found my little dog of 3yrs started coughing like a kennel cough, so I got medication and it took a week and cleared up. this month I have done the spot thing again and the next dag she started coughing. It is a cough that sounds like there is something stuck in her throat and sounds terrible.
Could it be something in the pour on. because this is just a little funny that the same think has happened 2 months in a row?

The fact that it has happened twice and soon after applying the spot on means the spot on could well be the cause. Please send me all the package details - active ingredient, preservatives, carriers etc and I will investigate it further.
