Hi. My poodle Val is coughing and sneezing and my mom wont take him to the vet. I think he might have Kennel Cough. How cruel is that?! Hes had it for months and my mom says hes fine but I know hes not. What can I do and what could he have? Thanks. :(

Talk to your vet on the phone regarding your poodle or talk alone with your mom and dad and tell them how you feel about your dog

I think that it is wonderful that you are so concerned about your poodle's health. I have been a poodle breeder for many years. I am also the Mom of 6 kids.(The kids & I breed poodle pups together- we currently have a litter of 4!) Perhaps if you just talked with your Mom sharing your concern and ask her permission to take the poodle to the vet- offer to pay for it yourself- that will get her attention, helping her to realize how concerned you are and how important it is to you.

You are correct, it is very cruel. Tell your mother that poodle is not "just a dog" it is a life. You don't say if your mom can afford treatment or not but the first step is to take him to the vet for an examination. If she still refuses to do so, tell her it is a form of animal abuse, just like not feeding the dog. If you can, I suggeset that you take the dog to the vet. I recently lost my standard & am looking for another. I will be more than happy to take her dog off her hands. PS - Does the dog sleep in the house or outside?
