My puppies are sick. Since their experience at the kennel of doom, they have had a doggie cold better known as kennel cough. Two of the dogs were vaccinated for it, but the oldest one was not. Of course, all of them contracted it.
Some of their symptoms are: runny nose, hacking (actually the sound of duck honking), snorting up phlegm and sneezing everywhere. It's lovely. It sounds a lot like my Grandfather in the morning. They just don't smell like Listerine and Old Spice.
And, because I love to freak myself out about my dogs' illnesses, I looked up what could come from kennel cough if we don't get them to a vet. I knew about the hacking and such as they are well into that. However, did you know it can also lead to anorexia??
Great. Now my dogs will be looking in the mirror, lamenting on how huge their bums are, feeling bad about themselves, and refusing to eat what I put in front of them because "Don't you know it will go straight to my hips?"
We are likely going to the vet later this week. They told me to call again on Wednesday if their conditions don't get any better. Considering Madison just blew her nose on my front window, I think we'll be taking a little trip.
