    Default respiratory infection

    Well we had our first official vet visit this afternoon. Angus, our 11 week old male EBD, came down with a bad cough, congestion and a runny nose. Not wanting to take any chances we loaded him up and to town we go......diagnoses... respiratory infection, a couple of shots later and a script of anti biotiotics, he is resting but still sounds pretty stuffed up........ so my question, being a first time bullie owner, is this...... has anyone ever tried a vapporizer on a puppy? Any help is appreciated and thanks in advance.

    Yes, I used a vaporizer with Bertie before she had her surgery to open her nares.
    Did you go to a Vet that has a lot of experience with English Bulldogs? When I first got Bertie, I took her to my Dog Dexter's vet...they tried to say she was sick and needed antibiotics, but since I had grown up aroung EB's I knew better...I took her to my bulldog vet and I was right...they lasered her nares and she had soft palet reduction and from the day she came home, you could tell the difference.

    I haven't used one, but have heard of other peeps using them. Hope you little guy gets better soon. Plus if your vet is not a bully vet, I would find one.

    I don't like the sounds of the cough, make sure he has lots of fresh water and rest, make sure not to get him excited or over played. I worry about pneumonia

    keep up posted and to EBN

    Agreed, if he isn't eating or won't drink take him back to the vet ASAP. Keep checking his temp and watch for it to go too high.
