interesting to hear other peoples' experiences.

luce got kennel cough right after i brought harv home. harv never showed any symptoms and had been vaccinated upon arrival at the shelter a month earlier. i assume it still came from him, or she picked it up at the shelter when she went to meet him.

she coughed so badly she'd vomit (on my pillow thank you very much). but all she took for it was cough syrup (HA GOOD LUCK) and a couple days of prednisone to try to cut some of the inflammation she had.

mushroom didn't get it at all.

later on, i vaccinated luce for kennel cough and didn't she freaking get sick (coughing, gagging, runny nose) from the vaccine. i won't give it anymore, even though she's around other dogs in classes and trials on a regular basis.

it *can* get ugly, even potentially deadly. but that's a tiny percentage of dogs. for most dogs, they cough, and then they get better. no biggie.
