Thank you for using our service. It sounds like your 1-year-old male American Pit Bull Terrier is experiencing coughing, dry heaving, and decreased activity. These symptoms could be caused by a variety of things, including respiratory infections, allergies, heart disease, and foreign bodies in the airway. It's important to have your dog examined by a veterinarian to determine the specific cause and appropriate treatment.

In the meantime, there are a few things you can try to help your dog feel more comfortable:

- Keep your dog hydrated by providing fresh water at all times and encouraging them to drink.
- Keep your dog's airways clear by wiping away any visible mucus from their nose and mouth.
- Keep your dog in a well-ventilated area to help them breathe easier.
- Avoid exposing your dog to irritants like smoke or strong odors.

If your dog's symptoms persist or worsen, it's important to have them evaluated by a veterinarian as soon as possible.

If you have any additional questions, please don't hesitate to come back to us! Thank you.
