I recently took my maltese mix dog (4mons) to the groomer. His little butt was getting matted from playing outside and he was full of grass and stickers from camping. I said short, they shaved him. And he has never been the same. This was Saturday. He hasn't barked. He doesn't want to eat. He is coughing up phlem, so he MIGHT have the Kennel cough. But when we took him to the vet they found nothing. Just like with my own child, I couldn't see giving him antibiotics when they were not sure he was really sick. No parasites, breathing fine, just a little gassy.
We are sad and worried. He just started drinking water today, no food yet. We all just want our puppy back to his palyful active self. Could be depressed? Is a kennel cough like a cold with a kid, it will pass eventually? SHould I call the groomer and see what happend? I need advice, our boys are so sad he isn't happy anymore!!
