I have a sick dog. Little Killian has had a cough since we got back from Hawaii the beginning of March. I know it's kennel cough, duh, she got it from the kennel. Yeah, she was vaccinated, yeah, up to date on everything else, it's just one of those things that happens. The bordatella vaccine is like a flu shot, it gets most of the strains, but not all of them. Anyway, she's had this cough, she almost stopped completely like 2 weeks ago, I thought I was home free, that's what Daisy did when she had the cough. Nope, now it's come back in Killian with a vengence! So Tuesday night I called, got her a first thing appointment with the vet and I'm set! Until John wakes me up from my extra 15 minutes of sleep Wednesday and lets me know that *You have a problem*. Uh..... sometime during the night, Killian also got the poops. Lesson for the day: Poops and coughs = not a good combination for a doggie stuck in a crate all night. Yeah, so I got to give her a bath, then me a bath, then off to the vet. So, $144 later, we have 2 meds for the belly, 1 for the cough and the promise from the vet that 'the worst is yet to come' with the poops. Goodie... Here's a *pooped* Killian.
