Kennel cough

Recommended Posts

My young bedy greyhound had her first heat and my busher broke down same time so I kenneld them togever with no probs,

i just noticed my young bitch as started to cough a bit,and she looked out of sorts yesterday ,

they are back in doors now and busher is fine .just the young bitch looks under the weather .

i don't want to take her vets yet but I don't want it to get worse.

i try keep her warm,quiet,and rest her .

be grateful to hear how folk deal with kennel cough.

Kennel cough has to run it’s course ,cannot be cured with antibiotics and from your post you are doing everything right .Keeping the dog warm and quiet will not exasperate symptoms .Roughly 2 weeks and dog will be fine .

Heard vets telling people to use the 2 different flavours of veno human cough bottle. Cheaper than any vet meds and works. Once it gets in dose every dog in kennel or it will reoccur

You can dose the whole country mate but the chough will still last 2 weeks . It’s a virus that just needs to run its course .

Understandable cough bottle won't cure it but it will help ease the symptoms and when one gets it they nearly all will in close quarters. I've seen people spend fortunes on vet meds. Large rescue kennels for example might vaccinate all dogs in care to prevent an outbreak and spend thousands even when it might not always work and won't be any good for treatment if it's allready set in. As long as there is no underlying issue which pneumonia  sets in on an old or sick dog then they should be fine.
