I have a two and a half year old Shepherd who for the past two days has been coughing and hacking, but nothing comes up. Theres no discharge, vomiting, diarrhea, listless, nothing. He’s perfectly happy and healthy, but has a cough. I’m pretty sure it’s kennel cough. I foster puppies through a rescue, and I had one here for about two weeks, who was vaccinated but still exposed to another dog that had kennel cough. The puppy did not have any symptoms, but I’m beginning to think he was a host. My dog is fully vaccinated and had his Bordatella vaccine in July 2010. Now what? I can’t really afford a 0 vet visit at the moment, although if that is absolutely what needs to be done and he doesn’t get any better in the next few days, I’ll have to do it. Any suggestions for home remedies? I don’t understand why if he was vaccinated he still got sick! How long does the vaccine last?
