This sounds dumb and probably way off.
A few weeks ago the neighbour told me his dog was very sick and he thought her time had come. Kaco is around 13. She had a bug in her gut and after a course of antibiotics has been fine.
About 3 weeks ago I opened a new bag of food for Erns and he wasn't well so thought it was the food. Tried a new bag and he didn't get better. He had really bad breath and not well at all. He has been on meds this week and better.
Now Tess has bad breath and not settled so wonder if there is something going around and she has it. Could be coincidence.
My 2 go for walks around the neighbourhood. Kaco next door doesn't leave the yard. They all eat different food.
Of course. Bordetella is air borne. Oh, not saying it's bordetella, just using it as a well known example. Hope you figure it out soon.
I think they can. Kennel cough is one virus that is air borne so I think if there is something else going around they can catch it too. Bailey had trouble with his stomach and is just now getting over it, Ginger is starting to get a bit gassy and burped last night smelled of sulfur so I know her gut is messed up too.
I hope both your babies fell better soon.

I don't think it is KC as they are not sneezing or coughing. Erns had that a couple of years ago.
With Erns gut playing up so often we didn't think of air borne virus. Last week the vet said we needed to xray and do blood tests asap as we know what happened last time we left things. My gut said leave it a few days. He still isn't right, but sure it isn't another tumour as he wouldn't come right at all.
I thought it was odd Tess was slow on her walk.
Hopefully it's nothing and your babies will be back to normal soon. Good thoughts and a prayer coming your way.
I would at least get the blood work done to rule anything out or catch something in the early stages. Prayers its just a bug.
Funny coincidence. Jack's gut is normally rock-solid but it's been a little off since this past Friday morning. Looser poops than usual and he's been waking me up to go. Seems that after I added some pumpkin to his kibble, he's back to solid waste. Didn't act sick, though.
