|Rooney came down with what we thought was kennel cough because he was hacking and doing the reverse sneeze thing.
Four weeks ago, his nose started running uncontrollably with yellow/orange gook. (I call them aliens.... so gross!!) Annnnnd he has double ear infections to boot.
The vet has prescribed him 1000mg of Augmentin daily and he's been on it for 3 weeks with no signs of improvement.
We were told that pasteurella takes a really long time to kick, so to stay on the meds, but my poor Roondogger looks so sad.
Lethargic, no appetite unless we hand feed him, sinus pressure because it hurts to touch his head, etc.
He's only 6 months old, so its very scary!!
Any recommendations/suggestions for an alternative course of treatment??
