Q. Dog got a dry cough with foul smell and occasional phlegm and occasional fever about 2 weeks now.

Answered By

A. Without knowing a bit more back ground on the dog it is hard to say what may be the problem. It could be something like kennel cough or another respiratory issue. However, due to the fact this has been persisting for several weeks now, I would highly recommend taking him to the vet for some medication as this doesn't seem to be an issue that will go away on its own.
