He is really poorly, and is booked into kennels next week for our holiday but I think we'll need to cancel now. I am trying to keep him in a different room from the children, and disposing of any soiled tissues, but he is really hating having his paws washed. The vet won't want us in the surgery waiting room, but I have left a message on his answerphone.

What else should I do?

Have namechanged as I know mners in rl and I don't want to be ostracised.

Aren't there enough Swine Flu threads on Mn without adding spoof ones?

There is no evidence that dogs can get swine flu... so is very unlikely..

Any chance he has kennel cough instead? Speak to vet.

But don't walk into the surgery if is kennel cough it is highly contagious to other dogs.
