Twice the cold

Now both of the labs are sick. Dakota has a hacking cough that could wake the dead and Cheyenne has now started with the same cough. On top of it, Dakota is sleeping more. The vet said that Dakota didn't have kennel cough when he examined her last Friday but either he was wrong of they have some other kind of cold. All my research online has led me to believe it is another cold. So, they are now getting a mixture of dog food and boiled chopped meat/rice for their meals to help them keep down their food when they go into one of those coughing fits. On top of that, no doggie daycare of all of next week. They will just learn how to be normal dogs and stay in their crates for 4 hours at a time while we work. We will be taking turns coming home at lunch to walk them, feed them, and let them out for a while. Everyone online says that colds like these last around 1 week so hopefully they should be over this soon. In the meantime, we will continue to give them the treatment they need: mixed food, cough syrup, and lots of rest. They have until Wednesday to show signs of improvement before another venture to the vet. Hopefully it won't have to come to that!
