    Ive got some young pups that have a sort of rattling in their chest. Their eyes and nose seems normal but you can hear em breathe.

    It almost sounds like a person when theyre really congested.

    Any ideas on how to treat it myself or should I go to the vet?

    They didnt answer at my vet's office this morning so I assume they took a long weekend.

    I started em on Amoxycillin yesterday since I had some here. If they arent any better by Monday Ill take em in then.

    I guess the Amoxycillin cured them or whatever it was ran its course because they cleared up and are fine now.

    I gave em two pills (each) the first day then one pill every day for 4 days and theyre fine now. I started seeing an improvement after the 2nd or 3rd day.
