Mom took Mackie to the vet yesterday. He was sneezing and had runny eyes and a wet nose and he felt warmer to the touch than usual. She didn't shove the thermometer up his hiney, but the vet did. He was doing that reverse sneeze-type noise and he has respiratory issues. Mom listened to his breathing Thursday night and didn't like what she was hearing. He was diagnosed with kennel cough, which dad says he definitely got at the animal hospital when he was neutered. Yes, he got the up-the-nose vaccine but it obviously didn't work for this strain of kennel cough. So Mackie is taking Doxy and Benedryl and taking it easy.
Poor Mackie sounds like a little boy with a very bad cold.
