Kennel cough

Riley has kennel cough, picked up at the dog park :(  The vet's office said to just wait it out unless things get really bad, she isn't coughing much but is snotting everywhere and I think she has a mild fever.  She is vaccinated against it but apparently that just reduces the symptoms (which may explain why she isn't really coughing). Any tips for how to make her more comfortable?  I am hoping she will be over the worst of it in a few days but right now she seems pretty miserable (and bored…

Wool was high also. I don't have any wool in the house. Lots in the 2 and 3 range. We have our…

Conjunctivitis? Allergies?

Hi everyone. Wondering if anyone has had a similar experience. To preface, when I brought Mac home almost two months ago at 8 weeks, I noticed some light allergy symptoms like sneezing and the occasional drippy nose. He also had the normal brown eye crusties in the morning. All things that are pretty standard for a dog. This month when things started blooming, I noticed Mac's sneezing increased quite a bit. I mentioned it to the vet during one of our vaccination appointments and she said to…
