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.
