Hey sorry to hear he isn't feeling well! I would suggest getting a secede opinion bc it sounds as if he may have kennel cough which can in turn lead to other respiratory illnesses! Make sure he is drinking lots of fluids and make a second opinion when you can! Hoping the medicine works and he gets better soon! My mom rescued 3 dogs from pet stores that were shut down and all 3 had it an it sounds the same as ur describing. I dont want to scare you just wanted to give some info

Everyone wants to kiss a bullie
I did not know he was from a pet store, this does change things because we don't know what the conditions were and if the other puppies were sick. I would also get a second opinion.
Well he was fine for two weeks and then all of a sudden he got these symptoms...could it be from the dogs at the pet store even though its two weeks later?
Either way I look at him as my rescue dog. He looked so sad in that pet store and I later found out that the store is a shop of horrors (after we got him). We tried to find a breeder but all the breeders are soo far away and my parents did not want to buy a dog blind without seeing him in person and they werent so keen on the idea of shipping him via airplane. I prob saved this dogs life and I am happy I did because aside from the illness he is everything I wanted in a pet. He loves me and hes soo smart and he has such a great personality...I wouldnt trade him for anything!

I'm not going to bother with the calling the pet store. There is nothing they are going to do except send me to their vet which is already a scheme. In their defense I know a few people who got their puppies from there and had no problems with them...so only time will tell if my little boy will be ok.
The name of the pet store is: World of Pups formally know as World of Pets and they are located at 540 86th Street New York, NY 11209. If you google it you'll see the reviews on Yelp and see what I mean.

I can't believe the vet was in cahoots with the pet store. That is insane. Get a different vet and make sure to leave complaints about these people!!
Sigh, I'm sitting here reading all these reviews about other pet stores and dogs who come from puppy mills and am getting myself sick...i.e whose dog died in a few months, whose dog got cancer after a year, whose dog's liver shut down after 6 months...so crazy and so sad...yep im not going to sleep tonight.. im making myself sick reading all of these and cant help but feel deep down that Dozer is awaiting the same fate God this is so upsetting.

Kennel cough can take awhile to show up. And it will get worse before it gets better if that's it! Don't be too hard on yourself about where you got him. I'm thankful you are the one that got him and not someone who will get rid of him at the first sign of trouble! A vaporizer would work like the shower and probably easier!
