Bordetella how to treat

The main component of most kennel cough infections is the bacteria Bordetella bronchiseptica, with other viruses such as Para influenza also contributing to the case. There are many antibiotics that can be used to treat Bordetella, but they will do nothing for the viral components. Amoxicillin based (e.g. Clavamox) and tetracycline based (e.g. tetracycline, doxycycline, etc) antibiotics are commonly used.

  1. I just took my golden to the vet two days( ago(he is approx. 20 weeks old). He had his second set of shots (bordetella & DHPPC). There have been several dogs treated at this office that have had parvo, but my puppy was not on the floor or in the same room with them. He was ok this morning and ate a little (he accidentally got different dry food). Now he is laying around, will whimper a little, and his nose is warm and dry. He is normally active and affectionate. The vet said he could be snuffly and sleepy for around 2 days. Am I overrreacting? He also went to the puppy park today for the first time. Does anyone know if it is A-the shots B-the food C-the park D-a combination? Should I wait a day and see how he is on Sunday and take him back to the vet on Monday?
