HI everyone~~ Shelby has been coughing like there something stuck in her throat, sometimes she gags trying to get whatever it is out, but nothing happens. This started on sunday, she is acting fine otherwise, no changes in her behavior, normal poop, eating fine etc... I am going to call the vet once they open, just thought i would throw it out there to see what you might think. Thanks!
Pam and Shelby
My first thought was kennel cough. But you never know with these labs. Always best to have a vet look at her. Please let us know how she is.
Your post is about identical to the one I posted about 2 years ago when Elias had kennel cough.
That's what I was thinking too.Originally Posted by henrysmom
Kennel cough was my first thought, too.

ahhhh, great minds think alike.
I was also thinking Kennel cough.
KC for sure. She'll be fine.

Thanks everyone, she has been vaccinated with Bortedella(sp), the vet wants me to give her benadryl for the next 24hrs for allergies and go from there. We were out of town for the holiday, so she was outdoors alot, different climate, so maybe just allergies. I'll keep ya posted.
Elias was vaccinated too. There are many different "versions" of KC and the vaccination doesn't kill them all.Originally Posted by crzy4margaritas
