Cold-Distemper-Can you tell me how to cure a dog of a bad cold? Her nose is running all the time and she is quite feverish. I have tried several things and none of them seem to do her any good.
What you term “bad cold” doubles is distemper and the usual house remedies have little or no effect in such cases. Distemper is the cause of very many dogs dying when not properly treated without delay. The usual symptoms are: Loss of appetite and listlessness; congestion of the eyes; nausea; dry husking cough; dog seeks solitude in dark places; skin and nose dry and hot; labored respiration; frequent sneezing; constipation which mostly turns to watery or blood stained discharge from the bowels; mostly shivering and seeks warm place; eyes inflamed and feverish; excessive thirst; rapid falling of the flesh, etc. It should be understood, however, that but a few of these symptoms appear at same time in any one case, and if some of them do appear treatment for distemper had best not be delayed. Haberlein’s remedy for distemper is a combination of the remedial agencies needed in such cases and seldom fails in giving desired results.
