Following on from my post re 'after kennel cough' It would seem this is not kennel cough. I have noticed that she only coughs when she is laying down such as all through the night. When she gets up there is no coughing all day. With the antibiotics etc she is happier in herself and willing to run with the other dogs, although she does go back to bed after this as though she is a bit washed out. But no coughing at all, then at night when she goes to bed it starts around 2am and continues until she gets up in the morning.
I have checked to see if there is anything that could set this off, but no air fresheners and as the other dogs don't like the sound that comes from her, they prefer to sleep in the lounge, so this means she has a choice of 3 beds to sleep in.
When I first got her she had a slight bald area underneath her throat as though she may have been tied up with a rope ( I am guessing as she was abandoned) and wondered if this could have damaged her throat which may cause her a problem when she lays down.
She will go back to the vet on Monday, possibly for an X-ray, but wondered if anyone had any ideas about her problem
She may have had kennel cough when I first got her, but this improved rapidly and she had one week completely clear of coughing until it came back with a force roughly a week ago and the infection was found, but it is not improving with medication yet. ( also none of the other dogs have caught the KC if that was what it was )
