When Barking Coughs Accompany Colds…Naldecon-CX

This very dapper canine from the 1970’s is the Naldecon-CX cough syrup dog. Made of resin with a solid metal center, it’s 5″ tall x 3″ wide x 2″ deep. Not sure why he’s dressed like Sergeant Joe Friday from Dragnet, but I swear I can almost hear him barking “Just the facts, ma’am.”

    Beautiful! Medical promotional paraphernalia never ceases to amaze me. From those big fat pens that you see in every doctor’s office to sculptures like this its very fanciful stuff. The last thing I feel like when I’m in a doctor’s office is fanciful. But I guess that’s the point, to lure you into believing that it’s all fun and you shouldn’t think about the reality of where you’re sitting at the moment but just be entertained by the coughing dog.
