ok, well i took my puppy, that is about 10wks now, and hes been sick for a while now. We took him to the vet once and they gave us medicine because he had a stuffy nose. But now it got worse. Hes coughing and boogers are coming out of his nose when he breaths; and when he breaths thru his nose, it sounds lk little sneezes. Well i took him again to the vet yesterday and they gave me a different precription to give him and that if it doesnt wrk in a couple of days, it might be distemper. He still has a good appetite and he drinks water but when he starts playing wit us is when he coughs again. His coughs are endless as soon as he wakes up but coughs more when he plays.
do u think it can be distemper even tho he eats,drinks,and trys to play?
pls help me out cuz hes my boyfriends little brothers puppy and he doesnt want him to die. And thats cuz we got the puppy from the humane society on january 31st.
all animals always need a chance to have a place they can call home. ADOPT A TRUE FRIEND!
The puppy might have kennel cough. If I were you I would call the vet you took the puppy to and ask if that is a possiblity. If so it is selflimiting. You should be able to talk to your vet on the phone durring his business hours about how the puppy is doing and current symptoms. Good luck with the puppy.
I love German Shepherds and will always have one with me for the rest of my life!
