Oh Dear, my new 80lb Doberman/Lab puppy does have TONS of snotties running out of her nose. Got her from SPCA and they said she had Kennel Cough..They gave me some Amoxil. No coughing, just a very runny nose for over a week now, and episodes of those "inverted" sneezes, none, one or 2 times a day.
The vet changed her antibiotic to Apo Sulfatrim, which seemed to do nothing. The third day i had her her nose seemed to be clearing, and i am wondering if this is due to the first antibiotic. I have been giving her yogourt and Missing Link health supplement, flax oil, and Vitamin C.
Now 10 days later, she still has a very runny nose, a little less perhaps, but a pale green colour (it used to be a dark yelow. Perhaps the Amoxil, would have been the better bet.. Have some left sould i start her back on them right away?
I'm not ure this is Kennel Cough, as she does not cough, she sneezes very rarely, she just has 2 thick snottie streamers coming from her nose most of the time. She is very tired, and i think she has a headache, and her eyes are shinny, and red rimmed.
Please any help would be appreciated!
