Bless Freya

Post by freyadog » 26 Apr 2008, 12:00


Freya started coughing late last night cough cough cough i knew what it was straight away after having dogs for many years.The dreaded Kennel Cough which is caught through the air so i have been told.
When she gets excited or playful then it comes again and white foam when she really gets going. :(
Feel so sorry for her its horrible having a cough as we all know.
Took her to the vets this morning and they gave her an injection and antibotic's ,just going to give her some childrens cough mixture too.
Trying to keep her calm but with a doodle this is not much fun..
Hope she gets well soon and hope my other dogs do not get it.

Hi Caroline and Freya
I soo feel for you darling Teddy has just suffered a bad bout of this awful kennel cough we have no clue where he got it ..but as you say its airborne so its very hard to avoid he is only 5 months old and it hit him hard and only today after 2 courses of antibiotics has he started to seem more broke my heart to see his little chest rack with the coughs and he sounded like an asthmatic old man as he walked around then the white foam changed to evil green was just horrible for him ..i am so relieved he is on the mend and I truely hope Freya recovers quickly..bless her :cry:
I gave Teddy cough medicine too for babies and it did seen to give him some relief or at least I felt I was helping him

Sorry to hear Freya is so poorly, poor little sweetheart. :( I hope she feels better soon and that the bear doesn't catch it as they are always so close together. It's such a worry when they are poorly, take care Freya.
Love Poppy

Thank you everyone for your kind words :) ,the poor little girl is still at it and her eyes are watering now and she keeps coming to me for help,sometimes you just feel so darn useless. :(
Just hope all my other dogs do not catch it specially Amber as she is getting old now.
Also Elmo hope he does not get it either as he is going for his first hydrotheraphy lesson Thursday checked by the vet paperwork sent to the centre. :)
Also Friday he is going to the groomers for the first time,Elmo has a better social life than me....

Poor Freya, bless her, not a nice thing to happen to a girl at all.

Perhaps you could find a jar of Manuka Honey 15+ and get her to slurp some off a spoon. It would certainly help her throat, and may well help to boost her immune system. It's wonderful stuff.

Hugs for her from M

Hooray the coughing has more or less gone only twice today looks like i caught it early.
Not unless something was stuck somewhere the vet could not look in her mouth as she would not sit still
