I woke up this morning to my 13 week old Australian Bulldog puppy Bear with this hacking cough. I have taken him to the vet and he said it was a viral infection and although he has had 2 of his vaccines it could possibly be Kennel Cough (recent outbreak in our area). As it is very mild (just sleepy, coughing sporadically – after/during play, he still loves food) he said he didn’t want to give him antibiotics (as to not lower immune system) unless it gets worse. He specifically refered to increase in frequency/severity of cough, loss of appetite and temperature. He gave me some cough medicine for relief in case it gets worse. I was just wanting to know of any ones experiences relating this and what to keep an eye out for and any natural remedies to boost immune system and overall health. Thank you heaps, please be nice as I am just a worried mummy.
Thankyou for all your help 🙂
