Not Quite Right

Tuesday, July 19, 2011

Just call me the obsessed puppy-mama. Bert is still not completely back to normal. Now instead of having the big-D, I can barely find any evidence of poop in the yard, and he hasn't gone #2 on a walk in several days. And, in the past few days, he has started coughing (or something?) every now and then- especially if he has been running around, but this morning I woke up to him coughing and hacking like something was stuck in his throat. His energy and appetite and sleeping/resting are otherwise normal, which is encouraging, but something is still not quite right. I guess it could be kennel cough, but he didn't have this coughing thing last Sunday when we brought him from the kennel- can it have delayed and only occasional appearance? Also, Banana seems to be completely normal- isn't it super contagious?

I was really looking forward to yoga this morning, but it looks like I might have to make a visit to the vet instead. I am hoping it's nothing serious- will keep you posted :)

ETA: I take the lack of poop in the yard back- I have happened upon several normal looking deposits :) Never have been so glad to see them ;-) But after some googli.ng, I do suspect that Bert has kennel cough. Off to the vet we go today!!

Oh no! Yucky! I hate when you get your dog back from a professional kennel and they have picked up some disease. Horrid. Hope he feels better soon. :)

UGH. Hate it when my dog isn't quite right. Every two weeks or so he starts spontaneously fasting. Right now he's refusing food again and I can hear his stomach growling from across the room. I am almost positive there's nothing wrong and he's just being a pill.... but it's unsettling! Hope Bert feels better!
