Default Millie Update

Well I got worried I went back to work and when I got home at 3PM she was making these really weird sound and was sneezing to much I got worried and said scr*w everything I am taking her to the vet. So I called and the vet said bring her in. I got there and she continued making those weird noises. Then they put her in a room came in and checked her out she did have fever but then they laughed I was like wth is going on with my baby? My vet said oh dear all that's wrong with her is she has Kennel cough ( Only cause she was in a shelter). They gave my girl a shot of antibiotics and sent her home with Doxycycline and Cough tabs. They are so nice to Millie and I. All the vet charged me for was her shot and med's $40.00. So Then on our way home she perked up and was wagging her tail and giving kisses I am so glad now we just have to see if the pills work for her. My only concern is How will I make her swallow these pills? Thanks everyone Hug and Licks From Millie.

It's easy to get them to swallow pills just hide them in a little piece of cheese. I do that for Goliath and it works wonders.

Kennel cough is very, very contagious, but luckily not serious for otherwise healthy dogs. My vet described it as more of a pain for the owner than the dog, since they sound awful, but aren't really that sick! I'm glad you got the meds. Dolly just ran her course (she picked it up at Petsmart), and was fine in a week. I looked into the vaccination, but it's sketchy on how well it works, and she isn't around a lot of other dogs, so we didn't get one. My other two caught it from her, but as I said...they were fine in a week. It was sort of pathetic...lots of sneezing and coughing for a week!

I'm glad she is so much better!

I will usually wrap Milo's pills in cheese or push them into the center of one of his soft treats. Does the trick every time!
