I adopted a Catahoula about 3 weeks ago. Because of the possibility of parasites and her unknown health at the time (she was found by the side of a highway), my vet opted to wait for her vaccinations until we knew her health was stronger and until we knew she is free of parasites (why I don't know). Last night she developed this horrible cough (it reminds me of whooping cough in a child). She coughs horrible then wretches. Only thing I can find is possible Kennel Cough.
She has an appointment with the vet at 3:30 today. How do I make her comfortable until then. How did she get this? We do have two other dogs - both adult, both vaccinated and current on shots. She has not been allowed around other dogs or in common areas - because she has not had shots yet. Anyone have experience with this?? Help- my little baby girl is coughing horribly.
