Some of you may have read my previous post about keeping my Newfie occupied while he is quaranted to our house & garden as he has Kennel Cough.
I've had some great suggestions and we have been playing with George, doing lots of training and been giving him lots of bones, anything to try and keep a 60 kilo dog who is used to getting 2 walks a day occupied in a tiny city backyard.
It is now day 10 since official vet diagnosis and approx day 15 since the symptoms started. I have been told not to take him out until his symptoms have stopped. He still has the occassional snort/splutter (probably once or twice a day). He no longer has the full blown cough.
He had been vaccinated and the vet said he had a reasonably mild case of Kennel Cough- it wasn't in his lungs and as he is a young healthy dog it was best to wait it out.
George hasn't been for a walk for 2 weeks now and is obviously desperate to go. He was even destructive today which is completely out of his nature- I came home to find that he had chewed (only the tiniest bit) his plastic food bowl and he had obviously utilised all his forgotten toys as he had moved them all from around the yard to his bed.
My question is in how long should I expect all symptoms to disappear?
