Kennel Cough

Recommended Posts

Poor guy, he won't eat anything. He wanted to sniff the knuckle bones we bought from the butcher, and then turned his head. I can't entice him with anything! I don't have a seringe so poor guy has been getting some water in his system by way of Turkey baster. It is crude, but it works, and he definetly perks up afterword. He is so sweet and sticks his nose into a tissue for you to wipe it.

Awwww....poor baby. Hope he feels better soon. He's lucky he has you to watch over him!

Another "natural" treatment, newbie advice:

 

When we adopted Bonnie, she came to us sneezing and with a runny nose (no coughing, though). She got better within a few days but then my other dog Jerry picked it up, too, and had it a bit worse. I would have taken him to the vet if the discharge from the nose had turned yellow/green, but since it stayed clear, I gave him what my mum forced upon me when I was a kid and had a cold (actually, I hated it): a chamomile steam treatment :rolleyes:

 

So I put Jerry in his travel (airline) crate, and then placed a bowl of hot steaming water, with a heap of chamomile flowers in it (actually I just put in 10 chamomile tea bags) right in front of his crate, and then covered all (crate and bowl) with a blanket for 10 minutes or so, twice a day for two days.

 

It really seemed to help, he was better within 24 hours!

Oh no! Is he running a high fever? Did they give him fluid sub Q or IV? Hope the little guy comes out of whatever it is alright. (and you too!)
