So I'm adopting a dog from the shelter, and she has been diagnosed with Kennel Cough. They said she just started taking meds for it, and that I should wait about 10 days to make sure she is better before bringing her home near my other dog. The problem is, I don't think it is even possible for a dog to get rid of kennel cough in an overcrowded shelter like this one (The NYC ACC.) So I was thinking of taking her home, and keeping her quarantined from my other dog. My question is, how far apart do they have to be? I only have a 1 bedroom apartment, so it will be tough to keep them too far apart. I can keep her in her crate in a corner with a "barrier" a few feet around her. Would that be good enough to keep my other dog safe from getting the KC? I also have a garage that I could put her in, but I'd rather not do that, as it is a 2 car garage that I share with another person.
