Posting access!

Well I spent too much time trying to figure out why I could not post here. Although I joined the community, it never gave me the option to post here. I ended up just leaving and rejoining, and it worked! Anyway, I thought I should introduce myself to you all. My name is Angela. My fiance and I live in West Chester PA with out new baby boston terrier, Harley. She is a 12 week old pup.




I had some questions for you all, because I have seen 2 vets that didn't really impress me too much with knowing about these dogs. The first one was just not thorough enough with her and gave her some antibiotics for her cough that developed about a week after we got her. The cough is still lingering, after finishing 2 weeks of the meds. The second vet said that if it was bacterial the meds would have taken care of it, and that it is either viral (and has to run its course) or it could be that her trachea is just small due to her being so small. It sounded like BS to me, but let me just ask, does anyone out there know anything about this? It seems to have gotten better, but she still coughs when waking up from sleep sometimes, tugging on her leash too hard, or running alot. The other question I had was the second vet seemed like a real wack, but he really scared me when he commented about the fur on her head being real thin. It was a bit thin when we got her, but she hasn't LOST any, it has just kinda stayed the same. He made me worry about some condition with a real long name (which I can't remember) and said to just watch it closely. Now I am nothing but worried about this dog. Can anyone help with some info about this? Could it be that her fur is just a bit thin on her head? Thanks in advance for any advice!
