Default respiratory infection

So, poor little Katie has a probable upper respiratory infection. She's been snotty, drooly, and smelly since Thursday. :( Vet couldn't see her, but prescribed amoxicillin based on my description of her symptoms. On the up side, we can delay her rabies vaccine

Poor Katie, I hope she feels better soon. I hear a lot of dog flue is going around. What part of the country are you in?

Good grief, you sure are getting a crash course in puppy parenthood! I'm sorry Katie is sick. You may want to give her some good quality yogurt or keifer (if you don't already), to help protect her gut from the downside of the antibiotic. Is she eating and drinking as usual?

Thanks for your good thoughts.

We're in southeastern PA. I'm sure the vet will say it's bordetella since I refused the vaccine when we were there last month.

My first instinct was to give her some yogurt, but the last few times she's had it my husband thought she seemed out of sorts the next day. Not sure if it's a coincidence or not; I may give her a little in the morning just to see how she does. We have a carton of Trader Joe's organic, full fat, plain.

So far she is. She doesn't seem to have any super alarming symptoms like not eating/drinking, severe lethargy, difficulty breathing, or gastrointestinal upset. No coughing or sneezing. If she were human, I'd think she had a sinus infection.

Theo got a kennel cough and he was vaccinated so even if the vet says something to you, there are so many strains and so many cases even with the vaccine, Katie wouldn't necessarily be immune anyway.
I hope that she feels better soon!

Oh, poor Katie! I hope she feels better soon.

I concur with Chagall's Mom regarding the probiotics while taking antibiotics. If she can't stomach the yogurt/kefir, you can always give her a powdered probiotic. Either option will keep her intestinal tract in good working order and ensure the good bacteria aren't killed off by the antibiotic. There's a lot of '-otics' in my post! LOL
