So can a dog who possibly picked up kennel cough at the vet and was sick 2 wks... pick it up again? Kodee got put into an exam rm clearly marked DO NOT ENTER TILL DISINFECTED at the vets. She had low energy, i day tiny throw up, off food and play for about 2 wks. Thought to be low grade kennel cough since she was in contact with it. Come forward she is my bouncing trouble finding happy puppy again.
I am out on a walk this morning and start to pass a woman with a small dog. She is holding her dog tight and moves to let me pass and says HE has a cough so i dont want to get to close. I pass go around the block (my only route till legs better) and who do I see passing my house and going straight up the street. Great, your dog has a cough and you just walked it clear around my neighbourhood. I heard her tell another dog pass the same thing as her dog RAN WITH ITS NOSE ON THE GROUND.
Face it, its a boy, boys like to mark while on a walk - alot. What are the chances of picking it up AGAIN in an outdoor environment? As easy as when at the vets and kodee sniffed the floor of the infected room? Part of me things oh this is silly, my lab never in 15 yrs picked up coughs etc.. on walks.
