Our 11 yr old has been coughing every since her best friend and mother figure since 3 months old had passed. What 3 days now. She has just started to have dry choking kind of cough since Alice passed. I know she has been really depressed for past week watching and staying with her old friend till the end. But not sure what is going on but she still eats good, runs around but stays on porch with her sister and us mostly. Any ideas what it could be? We gave her chicken noodle soup and it did seem to help her cough but she still has it. I'm at my wits end with animals this past few months. And don't have a few hundred dollars for vet test right now.
