A one and a half year old mixed breed female was referred to the clinic with a chronic cough. The referring veterinarian had removed a weed seed from the tonsilar crypt following which the animal showed transient improvement. Antibiotics and digitalis were administered with no evident response. The animal had never been vaccinated.
