    Default Coughing and hacking

    Hello and happy Monday to all my bulldog lovers!

    Quick question as I tried to do a little research on the topic and think I may be on the right direction.

    Izzy caught the kennel cough last week. I saw a posting at her daycare on Monday and Thursday she started coughing and hacking. It's a dry cough... mainly when she first wakes up and at night. She has no gunk coming out of her nose... just water. I am keeping an eye on her and debating if she needs a vet visit. Been giving her a little Texas honey and benadryl (1mg per pound right?).

    Anything else the group recommends? She is young and in very good health... that's why I haven't rushed to the doctor. Apparently its a virus... and unless it shows sign of an infection there's no much I can do?

    My sunshine doesn’t come from the skies,
    It comes from the love in my dog’s eyes.

    You are correct.... as long as she does not get any worse, nothing that can be done, it just has to run its course. Lots of water and plenty of rest for her

    Thanks for confirming. Been keeping her pretty quiet with not much activity outdoor.
