Customer Question
Daughter got pup from rescue...
Daughter got pup from rescue. Vet treated for kennel cough, got pink eye. Vet said maybe distemper...gave test for distemper, but had in the mean time vaccinated for distemper...now says since he vaccinated pup, cannot say for sure if pup had distemper or not. Daughter wants answers...wonders why expensive text was recommended, when vet could not determine if distemper due to vac.

Hi, Laura. Thanks for your question.

Do you know what test was performed for distemper? What was the result?

And the vaccine was administered after the test was performed, is that correct?

How is the pup doing now?
