I’ve been looking for a dog for months-and I finally found "the one". He needs to interact with my roomates dog first though, but the dog at the shelter has kennel cough. My roomates are adamant about the two not meeting, even though their own dog came home with kennel cough and got over it without antibiotics.

I would be devastated if this guy got adopted by somebody else while this is all going on. I offered to get him put on antibiotics as soon as they have their interaction, but any other advice about how to handle this tricky situation? What are the odds of him contracting it in a 3 minute interaction? And seriously could he even contract it if he goes right on the antibiotics?

Thanks in advance.
