2 year old with 2nd bout of KC

I was wondering if anyone can give me advice on KC. My pittie is 2 years old, very well fed (excellent quality food) regularly excersized and given lots of kisses :) She is vaccinated for Bordetella yet has begun coughing again (this is her second time in less than 4 months) and it seems pretty bad. She has coughed herself into gagging (and vomited once). She goes to puppy daycare but they said both times that no one else mentioned that their dog came home with KC....Is there anything I can do to "beef up" kali's immune system? Does this mean that she is going to a "bad" doggie daycare? How long should I wait before I take her to the vet. We just spent a little over $100 on antibiotics for a cut paw... and our vet won't give antibiotics even for obvious KC without a $50 examination!!:yuck:
Any advice would be helpful!!...

Anytime you are asking at what point you should take you dog to the vet is usually a signal it is time to make an appointment. Good luck. :thumbs up
