    Thumbs down Bella is sick... Days after shots

    So Bella, who is 11 weeks old now... And has been home only for a week, and whom visited the vet only five days ago (shots)

    is now sick.

    She is displaying the symptoms and sounds of Kennel Cough.

    Two days ago she had broken out in a rash on her belly it loked like small red bumps -

    i thought it was nothing because they didn't last long, they disappeared the next day. I figured maybe we played too close to some plant that doesn't agree with her..


    Well today (one day after rash gone) when I got home from work, she was honking and looking at me with big scared eyes. After calming her down, shes acting fine.. just a little uncomfortable, honking from time to time... and then throwing up a bit of pflem once in awhile.

    -Shes eating fine
    - Drinking water
    - Going to the bathroom fine (both) her poo is very soft

    8:00 am visit to the vet scheduled... He is a recommended bully vet who i trust... I just hope he can figure this out, and make her better... QUICK!

    Did I make a mistake getting her kennel cough shot done? Poor Bella I feel horrible for her! She's on the couch sleeping -

    There are people here who believe the intranasal bortedella can lead to pneumonia. Did she get the vaccine or the nasal dose? Anyway..it's good you are going to the vet first thing tomorrow..let us know! My vet is one who doesn't believe in this theory and we had no problem with the nasal bortadella...but wanted to put it out there!

    Ooooohhh...I didn't even think of this, but yes, the one in the nose. Some, I think, have gotten pneumonia from it.

    Yes! That's what I meant...there is a thread here on the nasal vaccine...maybe it's totally unrelated but some pretty smart bully people are concerned about the nasal dose. Your vet will know she had this nasal form and ask him about it leading to pneumonia. I'm so glad you are going first thing in the morning...bullies are very sensitive to lung problems. I talked to my vet about this and she specializes in bullies and has one herself and she does NOT believe this theory..but there is no reason to believe some bullies could be affected differently. Don't panic..if you notice her getting worse or having trouble breathing go to an emergency vet..otherwise your vet will be able to help!

    Definitely take her to the vet first thing in the morning, or an Emergency clinic if she gets worse tonight, this is nothing to play with. she probably has pneumonia and I sure hope she gets well soon. They can get really sick really fast and it can be fatal. The vet may want to keep her for a few days and maybe put her in a nebulizer to help break up the mucus. There is a tread on here some where that shows a pup fighting for it's life with pneumonia after it was administered the intranasal bortedella. Please keep us posted and we will keep her in our prayers.

    poor thing,i hope she gets better quickly,i hate vaccinations i know dogs need them when they are pups but its scary,annie is due her booster ,i asked the vet about the tilter test and it seems they only test for 3 if the vaccines and not the full 5 that we have here in the uk,bit dumb really,there is growing opinion that when a dog has had its first lot they dont need boosters,ive discussed this with the vet and i have 3 months after they are due to make my mind up,its a hard one for sure,karen

    Sooo I just got back from the vet, and I'm feeling much better about things... We are not out of the woods yet - but here is what He said.

    = He thinks its just an upper respiratory issue caused by the same reaction that lead to the bumps on her tummy. He gave her an anti inflammatory and a 14 day cycle of antibiotics *(via time release shot so no pills to deal with, anyone have experience with this type of shot? He said he feels very comfortable using it with Bulldogs and when possible he uses this method)

    He thinks she will get better very quickly with the meds - he said if she isnt feeling any better by Thursday - to bring her in for xray's

    Bottom line is after we got home from the vet, she has not made any coughing sounds (yet) and she appears to be in better spirits then she was last night.

    So, I hope she feels better! Otherwise Thursday I will take her in for more tests

    Thanks everyone for the advice and thoughts
