Kennel cough is not usually a serious condition, but can be very irritating for your dog and in some cases develop into a more serious disease. If your dog or pet is showing any of the following symptoms listed below, it’s important to give it the proper care so that it can recover as soon as possible.
Signs of kennel cough can range from the obvious honking cough, to a lack of exercise, to hacking up foamy liquid. Prevention is the best cure for kennel cough, so it is important to monitor your dog for strange symptoms, especially if you visit dog parks on a regular basis.
In many cases, dog owners do not bring their pets in to see an animal doctor because they are told that kennel cough is not a serious issue, and only lasts a week or two. While this is usually true, it is very common for the kennel cough symptoms to mask a more serious underlying condition.
While the cough itself is certainly nothing to be afraid of, it’s always best to be on the safe side when it comes to the health of our furry friends.
