We just got our little fella last week and his 1st vet appointment was Saturday, two days ago. He is healthy and perfect except for two parasites (roundworms and coccidia). So, he has two wormers. One was given at the office, and I give another dose in 2 weeks (for the roundworms I believe) the other is given daily for two weeks (for the other).

Saturday evening he developed a dry cough... and it seems like hacks something up and then swallows is back down. I am sure it's related to the roundworms, but I am wondering how long this coughing should last after the initial wormer dose was given? Or does this mean he's continued to be infected? It's only been two days but the cough worries me that new worms will be growing in his belly and I wasn't sure how long the initial dose continues to kill new ones. :suspicious:

Thanks for any help!
