I’ve had a bad cough for 5 weeks. The doctor prescribed a course of antibiotics in case it was bacterial but they’ve not helped. Coincidentally, 6 weeks ago we bought a Cavapoo puppy. Can you develop an irritating cough from being around a dog? We have had a fluffy rag doll cat for 8 years and that has caused no issues to date. Have you heard of a similar reaction before? Thank you!
