I have an 11 week old puppy. She coughs only about once an hour, but it is a dry hacking cough…like she has something in her throat. It started last night and has gotten a little worse – she coughed up some clear fluid on my husband’s shirt. We’re taking her to the vet first thing in the morning, but I’m really worried about her. Is kennel cough always constant, or is this something else because she’s not coughing all of the time. She goes to puppy classes that require vaccinations, and she has had her first bordatella nasal vaccine.

Also, she stays with my mom sometimes when our work schedules overlap…is my mom’s dog in danger if she is 4 years old and fully vaccinated?

Thanks for any advice – We are definitely taking her to the vet, but I’m going crazy right now worrying about her.
