Gramps the Beagle

Adopt an older dog…they`ll love you for it. This is Gramps, our most recent addition. We’ve only had him a few months but he has very quickly squirmed his way into our hearts. Gramps came to us this winter from an SPCA branch office where he had been found roaming in the woods. It’s sad to say but many people treat Beagles as tools for hunting. When they can no longer hunt rabbits they are either released into the wild, shot or tied out on a chain24/7. This is one reason why we have a special place in our hearts for them. Gramps is on a special diet and is missing all of his molars but he still has a great appetite. Unfortunately Gramps arrived with a severe form of Kennel cough. Our other three Beagles had been vaccinated but unfortunately two of the others caught the cough from Gramps. A specialist advised us that this particular form was virulent, and unless other dogs had been treated with the nose spray they would be susceptible. Lesson learned! They all get regular administration nasally. I recommend you check into this. This infection carried on for well over a month and Gramps still has an associated cough. Strangely enough our second oldest Beagle who had the exact same routine of shots never caught the cough. In addition, we were advised that he was deaf. His ear passageways almost looked deformed but they were just very swollen and very dirty. Subsequently, we happily found out that with a LOT of cleaning and anti-yeast treatment his hearing is now normal

Kenel cough or cough due to caridac failure?

We have a sheltie 12yrs, she had a tooth abscess, we sent her to the vet to have this taken care of. Turned out to have a severe mouth infection, lost several teeth.
On exam it was noted she had a low grade heart murmur, this had never been seen before, including a thorough exam just 8 month prior. We were asked is she showed any signs of coughing, (a sign of heart failure) she did not.

Subsequent to the operation she is now coughing, and doing so more and more. Getting worse daily.

So just kennel cough picked up at the time, or is the murmur caused by infective endocarditis, (infection of a heart valve, leading to heart failure, causing lung fluid and cough)? If it is infective heart problem, my research would suggest the treatment of choice is 3 months on antibiotics, which she has not ben given.

Infective endocarditis would seem to be associated with dental infections, and the coincidental timing of the appearance of the murmur is also suggestive.

On the other hand, dogs do get coughs from kennels and presumably vet visits.

(I’m going to take her to the vet again on Monday, so I’m not really looking for answers of the type: "take her to a vet and see what they say". More looking for ways i can figure out for myself what is going wrong can have added confidence in the vet.

This winter in spite of inoculations, all 5 of my dogs had kennel cough. Now the 3 that were the sickest have bladder infections, 1 has stones. Treatment with antibiotics, the 1 w/stones on prescription SD food for 1 mo. They are all doing well except they have gradually lost control of their bladders which Proin barely controls. All blood/urine tests are neg. for infections, diabetes, Cushing’s disease etc. I’m at my wit’s end. Any ideas?
These dogs are not related and range in age. They have been on 2 different antibiotics for 6-8 weeks-they are still taking them. Initially they had blood in their urine but do not now. All blood and urine tests indicate that there is now no infection present yet they continue to develop incontinance. The 3rd dog lost control tonight. They have not been on the same food and no recalls for anything they’ve eaten. They are active and playful. I just don’t know what is destroying their ability to control their bladders-I’m losing my mind! And I’ve spent a fortune at the vet with no end in sight.

Vets are expensive! My dog has kennel cough, and his coughing has become a nussiance. I need to get treatment for him, but I just got laid off, and I can’t afford any of the local vets.
And don’t tell me about "it doesn’t matter the price, he is still a sick dog" crap because I can’t even afford to go to the dentist, and I still put him first.
And if you know an alternative cure for his coughing, that could work too 🙂

Meet Skylar a Australian Cattle Dog currently available for adoption at! 4/16/2011 10:53

LHS Resident Since: 12/15/10 Weight: 44 pounds Skylar was found running stray in Hillsdale County, then brought here to be placed up for adoption. We quickly figured out that Skylar was both pregnant AND heartworm positive. The treatment for Heartworm Disease is very expensive and takes about 4 to 6 weeks to complete. Skylar was able to have her pups and care for them without distress, and we received enough monetary donations to treat Skylar’s heartworms! Her treatment has been started and as long as things continue to go well, we should be able to send her to a new home the first week of May. Skylar is housetrained when taken out on a regular schedule, and she interacts well with cats and other dogs. She is a cuddly, timid girl who will be an extremely devoted companion to the family who adopts her. She also walks well on a leash and doesn’t mind rides in the car. Skylar is current on her distemper and kennel cough vaccines. She will be started on monthly heartworm prevention while under our care. Her new owner will be responsible for continuing her monthly heartworm prevention and making sure her vaccines and heartworm test are updated by a veterinarian every year. THANK YOU to all who continue make it possible for us to help animals in need – we couldn’t do it without your help!

I have an adult dog being treated for Valley Fever with potential exposure to Kennel Cough. Is my dog at greater risk for getting Kennel Cough and if so, will Kennel Cough be treatable along with Valley Fever or will K.C. adversely effect the V.F. treatment?
Exposure is from puppy being treated for Kennel Cough. I have been planning to adopt puppy currently at a foster family. The pup is on antibiotics for Kennel Cough. Not sure if following the treatment, the pup will still be a threat to my dog being treated for Valley Fever. Thoughts?

I recently adopted a young dog from our local dog pound. He is the sweetest little guy, but he keeps coughing and sneezing. I called my vet and he said it was probably kennel cough. The vet said that it will probably clear up in 7 to 10 days on its own. But if it gets worse or persists beyond 10 days that I should bring my dog into the vet for treatment. This morning, my dog has some greenish eye discharge. I cleaned his eyes this morning and there has been no more discharge thus far. I’m just wondering if anyone else has had this kind of experience with kennel cough?

Please don’t tell me to rush my dog to the vet!!! I spoke with my vet on friday and I am doing what he has told me to do. If this somehow becomes an emergency situation then we will go to an emergency clinic. But right now its just a nagging cough and the occasional sneeze.

Does your dog(s) comfort you when you are upset?

Today I got some really terrible news about my most recent foster dog. She was sent to a no-kill humane society to receive treatment for her torn ACL that she came to me with. They called me today to tell me she contracted Kennel Cough and couldn’t fight it off. She started coughing up blood so they did an X-ray to try to find out why. When they turned her on her back to do the X-ray she turned blue. The X-ray showed an extremely enlarged heart and that she had about 1/3 the lung capacity she should have. The vet said that along with everything she was also showing precursory signs of cancer. Sadly we had to make the decision to euthanize her because they did not have the funds to treat her, and even if they had there was a VERY small chance she would have any quality of life.

Of course I was very upset. I grew very close to her in the short time that I had her. I was crying, pretty hysterically, and my male Pit/Boxer mix came up to me and laid his head in my lap. It’s very unusual for him to do that unless you are petting him. He just rested his head there and looked at me with these eyes. It was like I could see in his eyes that he was hurting because I was.

Do your dogs/dog ever do this? What do they do to comfort you?

Will you take Pepper home with you?

I was teary-eyed the whole time I was making this video. Sweet little guy, great disposition and walks wonderfully on the leash. He knew what a car was, and jumped right in. He is a lap dog and loves attention. He seems to be afraid of men. I took Pepper to the vet, where he is getting treatment. He had lots of ticks, and has upper respiratory infection. He also has cherry eye in both eyes. Today I visited him, and they had bathed him. He looked like a different dog. He gets along with other dogs and likes to play. All he needs is a home where they’ll understand him and give him lots of love. Thank you to all who helped. I will keep everyone posted on current vet expenses. I also need suggestions for a vet that can take care of the cherry eye problem.

I am looking over my new puppy’s medication history and noticed two that I am unclear of. They are ALBON (10 day treatment) and metronidazole (7 day treatment). They were administered on Feb 3 and we purchased her on Feb 6 but were not given any medications. She is now hospitalized with pneumonia and kennel cough but we were told she was healthy when we purchased her. Some clarification on those two meds would be incredibly helpful.

Kilik: my parvo positive pup

I found Kilik (named from Soul Calibur when I though she was a he) late at night. She was skinny, dirty, scared, and one of her toe nails (quick including) was missing. I took her to the vet and she came back parvo positive. After treatment she she is doing awesome, and she has found her forever home. Shes extremely smart, but willfull!

does my dog have kennel cough or heartworms?

she is a treeing walker coon hound, she walked into our yard years ago and was very skinny so someone called animal control on my family but we were not going to giver her them because the pound in my area killed most dogs within 3 days because they get so many dogs…. so we took her to the vet and got her fixed and her shots the vet said she was more than likely a pure bread from the way she looks and just ran too far from her home when she was hunting… anyways when we did take her to the vet the vet said she was probably about 7years old so she is probably 11 now and the past month she has had a hacking cough very loud and at the end of a cough it sounds like she is about to throw up or has flem. she is not a very active dog, as she has never been im guessing because of the age she eats and drinks well, sometimes she will cough and 2 mins later she will cough again, and sometimes she will go hours without coughing. i thought it was a cold and it would just go away but yesterday i asked my dad what he thought of the cough yesterday and he said it was probably heart worms, i asked could we take her to the vet to get her treatment and he said NO! because she was old and probably going to die from old age soon anyway and him and my mom were not going to spend money on dog that was going to die anyway. im taking her to the vet monday with my own money, because im not going to just sit there and watch my baby die, but i looked up coughing in dogs and it could be kennel cough,

so do yall think its kennel cough or heart worms? (please only answer if you really think you know what it is)
i am hoping its kennel cough because that is less expensive to treat, i am willing to pay the 1,000 dollar vet bill if she does have heart worms, but i am just trying to get an idea of what sickness she has before i take her.

Good Morning Skeletor!!!

Here’s mine and Skelly’s morning routine. He makes funny noises, he sees me, he gets all excited, I let him out of his cage, he starts coughing, I try and calm him down. I can’t wait until the heartworms are a thing of the past and we can cut out the coughing bit!
