Get Your Dog Care Questions Answered by Experts
Is she coughing up blood from the kennel cough, or throwing up blood? - Dr. C
Gotcha. That is likely secondary to upper airway inflammation. Did the SPCA send you home with any meds to treat the cough?
If you adopted her recently, they may be able to provide you with an antibiotic to treat the kennel cough and an antitussive to get that cough under control so her airway can stop being so irritated. If they aren't able to help you, is there a family vet you can take your pup to? Even though she's acting fine now, these youngsters can take a turn for the worse so fast! With losses through the cough and mucusy stool, she's at risk for dehydration. Best to err on the side of caution with your new baby and have her evaluated in person soon! Hope this helps - Dr. C
