Get Your Dog Care Questions Answered by Experts
Hello, JACustomer. I have been a Veterinary Nurse for over 15 years and would be happy to help you today. I'm reviewing your question right now.
What treatment, if any, has Mobes been on for the last week?
He should. I have not observed much efficacy from keflex when used for kennel cough as it seems to be more ideal for skin problems. I would recommend not only an exam, but chest x-rays to be sure this has not progressed into pneumonia, which is not uncommon with kennel cough. Azithromycin or Doxycycline are my two favorite antibiotics when it comes to effective treatment of secondary infections due to kennel cough. Your vet may also recommend a prescription cough suppressant.Failing this, you can find the dosage here for Keflex and it should be given for at least 5 days following the resolution of symptoms. Some dogs require as much as 21 days of medication. https://www.valleyvet.com/ct_detail.html?pgguid=c6d8774a-86bc-4942-a516-6ed5b9d39c51
