Forum Rules
1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.
2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

Right now i have had the worst few weeks with my dogs and i have a mini pandemic going on. On the 30th spider had major surgery. She took forever to completely come out of the fog and we ended up back at the vet 5 days later. 2 days later she is coughing so we get her on antibiotics the day the stitches came out since it had been 5 days of coughing. In 24 hours she was fine and the boys have it. Got them on amox and dog cough tabs now. The boys started getting back to normal then last night it came back with a vengeance. Seems to be alot of mucous that i hear when they breathe and splinter gets scared when the coughing hits. Ive also tried honey and coconut oil to control the coughing and its not helping. We know its kennel cough based off the timeline of spider being at the vet and that 3 of the 4 dogs have it. Anything else i can try or how long should i give the antibiotics before i bring them in.

You have probably considered this - or your vet - but remember that dogs can catch COVID in all it's nasty forms. Coughing, sneezing and diarrhea seem to be the primary symptoms. While it is not canine coronavirus (a separate disease) it seems to be similar. Not fatal, just uncomfortable.
Of several cases found within the canine population it does not seem to be transmissible from dog to human.
Sorry no references, that's from skimming / reading several articles online.

The thought crossed my mind and i paid to have spider tested because cases of covid are skyrocketing here. Her test was neg but true that its not usually fatal. Same thing with kennel cough. Its just horrible and i wish i could do something else.

I came across something about adding humidity to the air helping but i dont have one and i have noticed going out when its cold or getting excited makes it worse.

I usually run antibiotics a couple weeks but if I'm not seeing any improvement after a full week then it's often likely what I'm giving isn't going to do the job and may need to change which is being given. If they will drink a little vinegar in their water that can be helpful.

Today is the last day of amoxicillin (spelled wrong) called the vet 2 hours ago waiting to see if they are just going to do something else i need to go pick up or if i need to bring him in. Spider and shadow are 100% over it and squirt never caught it.

Coconut oil seems to help BUT is extremely high in calories. He wont touch honey in water. Ill try vinegar though. I know he likes pickle juice and i think thats mostly vinegar and brine.
