Kennel Cough and a new puppy....

1410 Views 5 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  Brisen
My parents own a 9 year old Sheltie and she got kennel cough (vet diagnosed) at the boarding kennel. She was started on antibiotics yesterday (5/23), but my parents bought a new beagle puppy (they liked mine so much) and were going to pick her up tomorrow, she's about 8 weeks. Will the puppy be ok? She has had her shots. We would have called the vet and asked today, my sister took the Sheltie to the vet and forgot to ask yesterday if it was ok to pick up puppy, but today is saturday so no vet to call and ask!
Thanks everyone!

I'd also definitely wait before bringing the new puppy home. Maggie had kennel cough when we brought her home from the breeder, and it took over $400 and 4 weeks to get her better.
