Pet owners do not need to spend a lot of money to cure their dog of this disease. There are several home remedies available to help your dog feel better; the majority only requiring simple household items and ingredients. For pet owners who prefer to let the cough run its course, the kennel cough home remedies listed below have been found to be effective in curing and providing dogs relief over the span of the condition.
*Please note that if the cough lasts longer than 2-3 weeks, or you notice the color of the phlegm change from clear/cream to a dark gold/green it can signify that a subsidiary bacteria/infection has set in. In this case, it is important to take your dog in to get looked at by an animal doctor for a professional opinion right away to ensure it receives the proper care.
