My five month old puppy has been diagnosed with “infectious tracheobronchitis” which i think is the proper name for kennel cough. We have been given synulox which is an antibiotic to treat the cough and also rimadyl to ease the swelling in her throat. Shes been taking the medicine for 5 days now and seems much better and is rarely coughing now.

However after looking up rimadyl and seeing some horrible stories i am now reluctant to give her anymore of the tablets. She only has 2 more days of the medication to complete so i am wondering whether to finish the course or not. If i stop giving her them i dont want the cough to return. What would you do?
add: shes a chocolate labrador
