Kennel Cough

9 posts in this topic

How many of you have had your dogs go through this?

My dog (4 year old lab) started hacking on a walk on Sunday morning and it persisted more that evening, it does not happen all the time just when she gets excited or is getting excersize. We took her into the vet yesterday afternoon and they feel she has kennel cough. Her appetite is fine she seems a little lethargic however the vet told us not to play with her or excersize her to keep the coughing to a minumum. Vet said should last about 7-10 days.

There are a lot of dog experts who are on FM and I just wanted a "second opinion"

She has not been kenneled recently (since July) and does not have prolonged dog interaction.

She has been vacinated for kennel cough.

Thanks Everybody.

Keep a close eye on her. We have friends that lost a very nice show Dane this summer because of kennel cough. She ended up getting pneumonia and didn't make it.

I don't think it's too serious, but you'll want to watch in closely and bring her in again if it's not improving.

Good reason to get the Bordatella Vaccine once a year. It is a simple in the nose gel and your done.

Hopefully she gets better soon.

Bordatella is the kennel cough shot.

Your vet is right. It'll take a week or two to pass if it is Bordatella. My dog had it last year at summer camp. There was a sort of mini epidemic last year with the gsp field trialers. Someone had a dog who brought it to a big trial and it spread like wildfire. It's gross.

Same thing happened at the Fargo dog show last summer. Someone brought an infected Dane. Tons of dogs ended up with it. Unfortunately, at least one that I know of didn't recover frown

My dog did have the vacine for kennel cough, my vet told me it is a lot like our flu shots, it covers the most common strains of bordatella but it doesn't cover all of them, it will also lessen the length of time that the dog is sick with the virus.

Last night she seemed better already!

Thanks for all the responses.

I run a dog boarding kennel and all dogs are required to have bordatella before kenneling. If you are around big groups of dogs you should have the vacine.

    • Way to get him out MM!  I'm sure he appreciates it.
    • I believe some units come with maps of some lakes but probably wont have any real detail as far as contour lines.  I think most will have a map of the US but when you zoom in you wont get much for detail on lakes and If they do contours will probably be 5-7ft apart.  If you want to put data on a card you will need a zero line card for mapping. About $150 i think.  8 hours should give you quite a bit of mapping.  Best would be to buy from a retailer so someone with knowledge of the product can show you how to run it.  You might be able to take some snap shots of sonar and put on a blank card but don't think you can map with it. I would get a Lakemaster card for the area(s) you want to fish.  Worth every penny.
    • Turkey season is over for my nephew!! It was a long season with many hours spent in the blind. He seen more turkeys then ever before and had a toms close enough to grab. It is going to be nice to sleep in. Until fall turkeys!
    • Heading up to Devils in a couple weeks and again later on.  Doesn't look like a lot of activity on here.  Tryng to get an idea whats happening before I go.
    • I have been out the last two days locally and haven't set the world on fire. Caught a few each day, but fish have been scattered. Lake is loaded with curly leaf mats this year, so that hasn't helped things. Once that starts dying and weather warms up, things should pick up.
    • Nada for me today. Had some hens come in to give my decoy some company today, but no toms. Sorry I wasn't able to help out on the scoresheet this year. As always, learned some stuff that will make me better next year.
    • We caught plenty of bass this weekend.  However most were small 12-13".  Deep fish were less than eager to bite.  Still seen a couple guarding nests yet. Small plastics fished slowly was by far the best tactic. Only found a couple decent fish, biggest being 19.25".
    • We called at about 4 had them as close behind the blind but never came around for the nephew 
    • What great fun on a 4-weight fly rod!!  Those are dandy panfish.
