    Yes I also knew it did not guarantee no kennel cough. But even if your dog gets parvo shots your dog can also still get parvo. What you are protecting against is a particular strain- and these illnesses manipulate themselves and change their 'properties' (cannot think of another word to use, sorry).... so the manufactuers of the shots are constantly changing them according to the latest and greatest illness. If you give your own shots like I do, you should throw them out if over 4 months old and get new ones that have a more current date.

    I sure hope Truman gets better soon, give him a hug from us!

    Why thank you everyone! Truman and I appreciate the well wishes. He's really so pathetic right now, with his nose all runny. He's eating good still and doing lots of napping so hopefully he'll be on the mend soon.

    AWW! I didn't know that it didn't totally prevent it! Hope he feels better soon! Our daycare requires the nose drops every 6 months...not sure if that's the norm for bordatella?

    Vegas went to daycare on Friday and every since he's been home, he's been coughing also. It's just a short dry cough..but it's been 2 days. I will call the clinic on Monday and also take him in to be seen.

    I hope he gets better soon. This is why I never understood why boarders and daycares require the Bordatella when it doesn't protect fully like it should. Poor baby, hugs and kisses to Baby T.
    I didn't do it

    @Libra926 It's probably wise to have him seen because it can get serious if not taken care of, especially if the mucous gets in the lungs.

    With Truman, because he was coughing so hard he was throwing up quite a bit, they elected to put him on a antibiotic to fight the infection. He's gotten better but is still pretty sleepy and has a runny nose. Spring Break is this week so we're not going to even think about day care until next week.

    Let me know how Vegas makes out!

    I hope he feels better real soon. It is so hard to be sick and for him not to understand why. Slobbery kisses from Bella and Abby.
