Welcome to Kennel Cough Help

Kennel cough can be one of the most trying conditions for dog owners as well as their furry friends. Once a dog contracts the cough, it will begin hacking frequently as often as every couple seconds. In some cases certain sorts of phlegm and vomit may be hacked up as well.

There are many kennel cough symptoms you can watch for in your dog to help you identify the disease. No one wants to see their dog suffering, and listening to that constant honking like hack can be a huge strain on dog owners, especially those who work from home.

Kennel cough generally only lasts for a couple of weeks, but it’s important to get your dog looked at by an animal doctor as soon as you start noticing any symptoms. It is very common for kennel cough to just be a symptom of a more serious condition your dog may be experiencing such as: heart disease, periodontal disease, chest infections, heartworms, parasites, throat growths, pneumonia, irritations, or allergies.
