Can kennel cough cause more serious complications if left

Can kennel cough cause more serious complications if left untreated?Several weeks ago my boxer/shepherd mix dogs symptoms--loss of appetite, malaise, coughing, --were treated with hydrocodone. The cough cleared up and he began eating within a few hours of administering the first dose of hydrocodone. I discontinued the hydrocodone on the second day and he was fine for several weeks. Last Monday 6/20 loss of appetite returned and the following day he had diarhea and vomiting. I was away from home and my husband wasyelping appearing to have a seizure. My husband and I located an emergency vet hospital an hour away because our local vets were all closed for the evening. Lab work at emergency revealed extremely high white blood count and zero liver function. IV fluids were utililized and he was transported back to our local vet the next morning where he had another grand mal seizure and died. One vet suggested infection as the cause. The other said possibly a toxic reaction==but we can find nothing in our home or yard that he ingested . Is it possible the" kennel cough" was actually symptomatic of some other type of infection that was left untreated?

She is one years old and recently had kennel cough. She is an outside 24/7 very high energy dog and got hit hard with the kennel cough but rebounded back to normal. We've been having some really hot weather and yesterday she played and ran hard "helping" haul brush. Today it is cool and wonderful outside and she's walking slowly, doesn't want to play, hasn't really eaten for a couple/three days, and looks terribly sad. Could it be the heat catching up with her? Thanks for info!JA: I'm sorry to hear that. The Veterinarian will know if the dog will be able to digest that. What is the dog's name?Customer: Digest what? Her name is Sadie.JA: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Sadie?Customer: Can't think of anything right now, other than she still likes to chew things.JA: OK.

My beagle was boarded last week and last night began

my beagle was boarded last week and last night began coughing without relief andcoughing up fo***** ***** slick substance every few minutes. He was miserable all night.I sat in the bathroom with him with the hot water running in the shower and a vaporizeron the counter and he did get some relief from coughing for a few minutes. I believe itis kennel cough. He was playing with a six year old child yesterday afternoon, and I amconcerned about whether there is a danger of her contacting it. I have a phone call into my vet but haven't heard from him yet. Is the child in danger of catching it?

My 6 month old Cavapoo puppy has had an intermittent gagging

My 6 month old Cavapoo puppy has had an intermittent gagging cough. Was originally treated for kennel cough and it seemed to go away, but has reappeared. It is just occasional, and he still eats and plays fine. They did and x Ray at one point and said it could be bronchitis and treated him for that, but said it could also be worms that migrated to his lungs and we have to wait for them to migrate back out. Does that sound right?
