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.

Hayden has been attending puppy kindergarden for 3 weeks now and this week I noticed him starting to cough. It's not a constant cough, but does happen several times a day. It's like he has a hairball, but nothing comes up. He's also got a bit of a runny nose and some crusties on the corner of his nostrils. His eyes have been a little boogery too and has been sleeping a lot! Does this sound like kennel cough?? I'm making him a vet appointment in the morning, I just wanted to see if anyone could give me some peace of mind tonight to hold me over until morning.

Yup sounds like a mild case. Usually they get over it themselves without any antibiotics. Kale had a runny nose and goopy eyes a couple moths ago, didn't take him to the vet, since he never developed a cough. I'm glad you have a vet appt Very Happy He's gonna be just fine. Most dogs that I see come into the clinic are coughing so much that they make themselves throw up! In a few days he'll be back to normal Wink

Do you think I should take him or just wait it out? I don't mind forking out the cash, but if I can save a few buck's that's always nice haha. He doesn't seem miserable by it ..... I just didn't want it to turn into anything serious.

Yea I'd take him just to be on the safe side, especially since he does have a mild cough.

It's your call. Depending on how he's doing usually kennel cough is nothing really serious. Elara got kennel cough when she was about 4 months old from the vaccine! I was so mad. I just let her get over it herself. I read later that you should only give a puppy half the dose or they will develop it, plus it's kind of a worthless vaccine cause it's so limited in the strains it can prevent.

So, we just got back from the vet and thankfully he didn't have kennel cough! The vet said he has a mild cold and she could treat him with antibiotics or just let it run it's course and give benadryl if it gets worse. I decided to just let it run it's course, since it's not bad at all and I don't want to give him medicine that would upset his tummy.
