My 2 yr old chocolate lab has come down with a weird deep cough and hasn't been in kennel. Hoever we have another chocolate lab who we adopted and not familiar with history because someone juist let him loose in our area and nobody has claimed him, I've just swiitched their food from Iams regular dog food to Iams antioxdant brand. 'Can you help me?
Yea, sounds like kennel cough. Just make sure the new dog gets his shots, including the one for kennel cough. The dog with the bad cough most likely needs antibiotics and possibly a shot depending on the severity of the cough. A trip to the vet will do the trick. Sometimes, even after the shot and meds, the dog will continue to cough for about a month. My puppy seemed to get worse before he got better. It'll all work out.
