Hi, I have a 3 month old rottweiler mix and we brought him from the pound over 2 weeks ago. We rent a back house and the owner’s have a 3 year old boxer in the backyard. Before we brought our dog, their dog wasn’t sick. A few days later, my dog started with a cough and it sounded like he had kennel cough. I took her to the vet a week later because she got better in a few days. She gave her antibiotics and she is been taking them for 3 days now. The boxer also has that since my dog gave it to her (we feel so bad about that). Her symptoms are worse than my dog, she is been puking white foam and all the food she eats, today it looked like her vomit had some blood on it. We are very worried, the neighbors are mad at us and are also giving her medicine but it’s been 3 days already and it looks like she is not getting better. Is this how the medicine works? Is she supposed to be coughing even if she is taking the medicine? Because my dog is not coughing anymore. Also, my dog ate some of the boxer’s puke, is this going to affect her more? I appreciate any answers. Thanks.
also, when I took my dog to the vet, she was worried and told me it might be distemper, she told me took out for other signs and if she is not getting better in a week to take her back. why would she have distemper? I already love her to much to see her go.
a vet came to their house on sunday and they said that he gave her a shot with antibiotics and left medicine for her (cough syrup). I really think they should take her to another vet since her symptoms are not getting better, they say they love their dog but since we moved in here we noticed that they never take her out for walks, she lives in the backyard 24/7 and now that my dog came I was taking both of them for walks, she loved it. We feel very bad about her being sick because if she doesn’t get better, it would be our fault.
