Daisy has been sneezing and coughing a lot lately. I thought for a while it might be allergies, but decided it was late in the season for them to all of the sudden strike now. I took her to the vet yesterday and found out she has a viral infection that many dogs in the town I am from have been treated for in the last couple of weeks. The vet wanted to know if she had been in contact with other dogs. She is everyday when I take her to the dog park. We love the dog park, but I don't want it to make Daisy sick. Should I stay away for awhile? The vet said she is not contagious because of the meds he gave her. I am concerned when she is off of her meds that she could catch something else. Just looking for some opinions. Thanks!
Pen--you have a good point too. One thing I'm concerned about is she is so social. We thought about getting another dog, but right now we don't have room for another one. We are looking to buy a house in the next year and will definitely adopt another pooch when we are settled. I suppose I need to do what is best for her health... it's just difficult to keep her away from something she loves.
