Yes, sounds like a kennel cough to me. They can get it even though they are vaccinated. Happened to Monty as well. I don't remember whether the vet gave us anything for the cough, you might want to call your vet.
That's interesting. Humans under 1 year are not supposed to have honey due to botulism spores. Dogs do have more acidic stomachs so that may make a difference.
Does sound like kennel cough which yes they can get even if they have had the shot. However, double check to make sure your vet gave the shot because at our vet it isn't one that is given unless you specifically ask.
Bordatella vaccine is like flu vaccine; it doesn't completely immunize a dog (or person) against all strains of the virus. They can still get it.
I would call the vet.
Good info on kennel cough (bordatella): http://www.peteducation.com/article.cfm?c=2+2102&aid=452
Absolutely! Fudge got kennel cough and had the vaccine. I forget what the vet treated her with, but she was unable to go back to doggie daycare for two weeks. Good luck!!
wow, every six months. Here it is yearly.
Every six months here too. Our vet gives the shot, not the nasal.
Sounds like kennel cough but I'd have a vet look at her. Since there's no guarantee that the vaccination will stave off infection, I don't bother with it for Riley and Molly. I believe the usual treatment depends on the severity. Riley appeared to have kennel cough about 1 year ago. The vet checked him over and said since it appeared to be very mild, he said Riley seemed strong enough to fit it off. Just as we would with a cold. In some cases an anti-inflammatory is given to reduce the episodes of coughing and to make the dog feel more comfortable. Antibiotics are given for more severe cases, so really only a vet can determine what's going on with your doodle. Good luck and keep us informed.
We were dog sitting a friend's dog and she got it at the park. We gave her Robitussin D a few times and she was fine in 24 hours. If this does not help call the vet. Some dogs get it badly and have to have antibiotics.
