I adopted a Shiba Inu puppy earlier this month from a shelter and after bringing her home I noticed that she had Kennel cough symptoms, so I brought her to the vet and she tested positive. So of course they prescribed her the usual Clamivox and Baytril. Then about two weeks later I noticed that she bagan limping and that her front paw (which she was limping on) was red and became discolored, so again I brought her to the vet. They took cultures and said that she tested positive for fungus and they prescribed a topical and oral medication. Meanwhile she still has the "kennel cough", she seemed to react well to the antibiotics…at first. Now, for the past several days, I noticed her kennel cough symptoms getting worse…seriously worse. And I also noticed that she’s been having mucus drip from her nose and from her eyes along with nasal secretions. Could this just be a REALLY bad kennel cough or canine distemper disease?
Also, there is no cure for canine distemper disease…maybe thats why her past owners mightve let her go in the first place??? Im really scared but I have to ask for opinions, because it is a long weekend and the vet is closed and I dont know what to do.
