Where Caught: not sure we thought it was from a camp ground but then the more we read up on it we don't know. some sites say that they could have it for a long time with no symptoms. we got charlie from furry babies, we didn't look into them before we purchased charlie from them. come to find out after they sweared up and down that charlie came from a licencd breeder and not a puppy mill or anything else like that. so they lied and we got a sick pup from the beginning charlie had kennel cough. anyways so thats why were not sure where charlie got this from he could have gotten it this fall at the camp ground or where he came from. who knows

Symptoms: lameness in right back knee. at first we thought he broke his leg then we thought he tore a ligament and then we thought he sprained it, next he stopped eating then depression. knee swelled up to the size of a softball. then his cough. thats all for now he's on itra.

Treatment: 250mg twice a day of itra

Cost of Treatment: through pet health pharmacy in az about 100 a month

Additional Comments: this site saved charlie's life if we hadn't found it we would have put him down. THANK YOU SOOOOO MUCH
