    Default My Tonka is sick and i found this site while looking for advice online.

    Hello everyone from Troy & Tonka

    Tonka is my first Bully and he is four and half months old. The other day he woke up sick with bright yellow thick snot and flem in his chest in which he cannot cough up yet. I took him to the vet & they told me he had kennel cough and sent us home with some antibiotics. Well thus far the flem has in chest has seemed to got worse and he cannot even breath if he tries to play around. I can not stand the poor noises coming out of him and want him better asap. If you have any good advice please send it Tonkas way. I am truly starting to worry

    Thank you very much Bully family
    And thanks for having us.

    Welcome to EBN! We are glad you found us. Have the tried the steam as suggested on your other thread? I would almost be inclined to take him back to the vet if he seems worse. I hate that it is Friday night which means you will need to find a vet that is open on Saturday, but if he can't breathe when he plays, I would be very concerned.

    There's a canine flu going around and the symptoms you mention are the same. try to relax for your baby and the steam will help him to breath for a while. Keep up with the medicine and keep him cool. not hot. lots and lots of water will help. this flu is lasting about 10 days I'm told. Starts with the cough and then the yellow and green snotty nose comes.

    Also, do not take your sick dog in public. This flu is very contiguous
    thank you

    If you are concerned and see no sign of improvement..go back to the vet..if you are not satisfied search for a Bully vet..we do have some listed here by areas.

    I agree with the others... go back to a bully vet. Here is the link to our member recommendations and Dr. Butchko is on the list.

    Yes! I've only heard good things about him. But there is one closer to you..in Santa Ana I believe. @cali~jenn has been to him. Dr.Butchko sees tons of Bully's. If I remember correctly..he doesn't take appts. You go there and wait. @Fontanafox goes to him and can give you better info. I'm in Monrovia...yayyyy...glad you're local! Someday we can meet at the Doggie Beach!

    A vet experienced in Bully's makes all the difference in the world and honestly..when it comes to surgeries and Bully specific issues..they can save a life.

    Oh yes if you need a bully expert then I would DEF go to Dr. Kraemer in Santa Ana. Much closer to you than Butchko and I just LOVE him there. He does take appts and the whole staff are just wonderful there. I am not one to like Dr.s or vets much usually and this one I really will drive the 1 1/2 hours to see if there is a reason to. He works closely with Southern California Bulldog Rescue and sees MANY bullies.

    Poor Tonka..I know how awful it feels when you try so hard and these guys are sick. Hang in there..I would call another vet if he isn't better soon..or if you think he's getting worse at all. Absolutely..jake would love a meet at the beach.
