Very interesting! I keep coming back and reading this thread. After doing some digging I did decide to put her on it, at least while she's taking the antibiotics. She has a pretty sensitive system so I'm sure I'll see any adverse affects right away; so will keep everyone posted.

I offer Nupro every night to all three. It contain probiotics. They all get enzymes as well.

Hope is the only one who really needs it but while it might seem a waste, those other two are healthy as can be so I am not concerned.

Kat, I'm sorry Kahlua is under the weather, hope it clears up soon! I'm wondering
how come you don't give your guys the kennel cough vaccine, considering you
foster dogs? Since I started rescuing, over a decade ago, I have always given
my dogs and the rescues the annual intranasal vaccine. I understand that it is
not always effective, but in my case not once had I had a dog that got kennel
cough after being vaccinated.

Thought I should add, I ask you Kat only out of curiosity. I know there are mixed
opinions regarding this vaccine. But here in the city for example it is impossible
to get your dog groomed or boarded without it, it seems to be mandatory
everywhere. I understand that it may not be necessary for many pet owners,
especially for dogs that aren't often exposed to other dogs. But having several
rescues under one roof with my own guys, and on top of that going to dog
parks, grooming salons, boarding facilities, I have no choice but to vaccinate.
I know you do things differently from me, because you foster for rescues,
instead of rescuing directly. That makes things a little different, because I would
suspect that the rescues you work with vaccinate against kennel cough...no?
Or does it depend on the organization? Or is it that they vaccinate, but in this
case it was not successful? I'm really curious, because even though I've been
lucky so far, I know it's not bulletproof.

Sorry if my rambling makes no sense, it's been a long long day.
