Q. I think my dog has a cold . He is coughing sneezing and has a runny nose. He is a four year old English bulldog .
A. The cold will usually resolve on its own in a week or two, but given that you have a bully, it is prudent to have him examined by your veterinarian. The brachycephalic breeds (those with 'pushed in' faces) are at greater risk of complications from respiratory illness. Make sure he continues to eat and drink normally. Keep him warm and dry. See your vet immediately if you see any difficulty breathing.
