Brownie the Town Dog of Daytona Beach got bronchitis and of course it made the papers.
See my notes after the article below.
- Can a dog get bronchitis? It turns out that yes, they can.
- Brownie had heart worms “three or four times”, which weakened his heart. Treatment options were not that advanced in the 40s and 50s.
- The most interesting tidbits are the details around his various hospital visits: 1943 (hit by car), 1947 (dislocated hip), 1949 (bad cough and reaction to heart worm treatment) and 1951 (street fight with another dog).
- The picture used is the same one used in his obituary.
