Vet : Hi, are you online?
Vet : ...
JACUSTOMER-b39qkiwl- :

yes i am on line

Vet : Did Tessa get antibiotics for the kennel cough?
JACUSTOMER-b39qkiwl- :

what is your advice please

JACUSTOMER-b39qkiwl- :

yes 7 day course

Vet : Was there any difficulty in administering the kennel cough vaccine?
JACUSTOMER-b39qkiwl- :

no

Vet : Has the snorting been going on since the booster?
JACUSTOMER-b39qkiwl- :

her nose has gone from black to pink

JACUSTOMER-b39qkiwl- :

yes

Vet : Does the snorting happen at any particular time of day?
JACUSTOMER-b39qkiwl- :

no only when she gets excited

Vet : And what comes out? Green mucus or clear fluid, or some other colour?
JACUSTOMER-b39qkiwl- :

nothing

JACUSTOMER-b39qkiwl- :

and a rasp in her throat

Vet : Ok, from what you've told me there doesn't seem to be any severe problem in the nose such as an abscess or polyp blocking it. However, the loss of pigment in the nose is of some concern as it is sometimes related to past inflammation. Since this is related to the vaccine I strongly recommend you tell your vet, who will report the reaction to the vaccine company. In the meantime, her sore throat may be eased by giving half a child's dose of Benylin dry cough.
JACUSTOMER-b39qkiwl- :

thankyou

Vet : If you are not happy with the situation after a week I would head over to your vets, as they will have stronger, veterinary-specific drugs to help her throat. Please make sure you report this reaction, though.
Vet : Some dog owners swear by Vick's Vaporub for similar disorders. Dissolve a teaspoonful in and mug of hot water and soak a rag in it. Place this near her nose and let her inhale it. If she doesn't like it, stop.
Vet : Do you have any further questions?
Vet :

Hi, please don't forget to rate my answer if you are happy, or ask further questions if you need to. Regards, ***** *****
