Help your dog breathe easier with RespAid, an all-natural herbal formula for the treatment of coughs caused by colds, allergies, asthma, bronchitis, and irritants like cigarette smoke. Dogs are susceptible to upper respiratory infections and are highly contagious when ill. Respiratory problems in canines are caused by parasites and by bacterial, viral, and fungal infections. Symptoms are similar to those seen in humans and include watery eyes, runny nose, sneezing, fatigue, coughing, and difficulty breathing. Kennel cough is a result of bacterial or viral infection.


To be taken twice daily. Determine your pet’s weight and then use the easy chart below to determine the correct dose. This is the minimum dosage.


Pet's Weight Dosage

0 - 15 lb = 0.5 ml

16 - 30 lb = 1.0 ml

31 - 45 lb = 1.5 ml

46 - 60 lb = 2.0 ml

61 - 75 lb = 2.5 ml

Over 75 lb = 3.0 ml

For small animals (rabbits, ferrets), avians and reptiles use 1 drop for every 2 lb of body weight. 


How to Administer
Shake well before use. The easiest method is to use the dropper provide and places the drops into your pet’s food or favorite treat. You can also use the dropper and squirt directly into the pet’s mouth.

Some pets can be finicky, if this occurs consider hiding the drops in foods most pet’s love such as fish, chicken or yogurt or a favourite treat. If your pet only eats dry food then soak a few kibbles at feeding time.

For Best Results
Herbal dietary supplements are beneficial to the health and wellbeing of your pet and are safe for long-term use.

Supplements generally take two to four weeks to take effect, however this will vary from one animal to the next.

Becket has struggled with breathing issues as he's gotten older. As a senior rough collie nearing his twelfth birthday in February, the RESP-AID made sleeping at night a much easier time for him, so I happy to have found the product and for Becket to enjoy peaceful nights. *

We have saved ourselves a lot of money in vet bills by using NHV products. Tobi went from a deep barking cough almost every time he moved to barely any cough at all. So glad I tried your products *

Added this supplement to my senior Chihuahuas daily regime. She has a heart murmur which can cause her to cough. Since starting this supplement, she really hasn't been coughing at all and I'm glad that this has helped her. *

My 15 Year old Boston Terrier has had an issue within the last year with allergies going into sinus infections. She has been on antibiotics several times as well as a prescription allergy medicine. The Resp-Aid has made a noticeable difference for her. I'm running low so I skipped it a few days until I could reorder-thinking that she's on the prescription meds-well even with those meds she had more goop in her eyes and sneezing without the Resp-Aid. I am delighted to discover that there is a combo of products specifically for sinus/allergies. I plan to buy them today. Thank you for your wonderful products as well as your helpful and friendly customer service department. God bless! *

Ozzy came to us from the shelter with such bad kennel cough and respiratory he was miserable. His nose was stuffed up he had a stream of gooey green coming from his nose and gook in his eyes. Even after the vet put him on him though two dose of antibiotics and eye drops he still couldn’t shake it. After using the Resp Aid and eye drops he quickly was breathing better, no more nose and eye mucus. *

My old 14 year old pug was having such a hard time walking and he was sleeping most of the day. He also has a slightly collapsed trachea. I purchased the Old Timer and the RespAid. I see such a great improvement! He is walking so much better and he quit sleeping all day. I started giving the Old Timer to my 12 year old Boston, too. He also is doing well. Love the products! *

Karen - Churubusco | June 28, 2017

Our beagle, Sibbie, is 16 years old, she has been diagnosed with Cushing's, chronic rhinitis, arthritis and many other health problems. I have been using Supraglan, Old Timers and Resp-Aid for 3 months. She has slowly been improving. The chronic rhinitis, breathing and coughing has had the most notable improvement from the Resp-Aid. She sleeps better through the night and seems much happier not so depressed acting. I thought the products were a bit pricey but the bottles last over 3 months. It takes awhile to see improvement but be patient, after the first bottle (3 months) Sibbie has now a better quality of life which is priceless. *

Jerry - Toronto, ON | August 26, 2015

Our dog is making a miraculous comeback. We took her in for blood work last week, just 1 week after we started her on Tripsy, Resp-Aid, Yucca, and Mellit. To our surprise all of her blood levels dropped 50%. The vet was stunned as he was preparing us for the worst. She's more energetic now and improving everyday. We are scheduled for more blood work next week to make sure things are moving in the right direction. We can't thank you enough for your support and guidance and rushing the order to us over night. We are so lucky we found you. *

Misty | May 7, 2015

Misty our 13 year old adopted dog was diagnosed with a collapsed trachea about 6 months ago. Nothing our Vet prescribed for her was working. She couldn't walk 2 feet without coughing/honking so bad she would spit up. I researched natural products and found Resp-Aid Dog Cough supplement by NHV. After just a few days of giving this to her twice a day, she is able to run with her sister and brothers around the backyard. Thank you so much for giving my little Misty her life back. We will definitely keep buying this product for her. *

I want to tell you what the NHV products have done for Black Boy!!We have had our 14 year old long-haired dachshund Black Boy on NHV products for nearly 2 years now. We have him on Resp-Aid, Milk Thistle, Hearty Heart & Supra-Glan. We believe that these products have given him a longer life-span(he will be 15 on August 22nd) & helped him in his battle with a bad heart-murmur..Cushings & liver issues. *

I started my 17 year old sheltie mix on Resp-Aid 7 weeks ago and noticed a change immediately. He (we) now sleep through the night and his coughing bouts are much less frequent. He also likes the taste. After searching for a non-narcotic fix for his cough I've found this to be a great remedy! Thank you! *

Heartfelt thank you! My dog Teddy and cat Luna have been doing so much better since they have been on your products. Both Teddy and Luna are on Resp-Aid, BK Detox and Old Timer . The Old Timer has worked amazingly well for Luna's arthritis and teddy's nerve pain and muscle spasms. I am eternally grateful that you have created these amazing and powerful healing herbs to support the health and well being of my beloved animal companions. I wished more veterinarians offered your products as an option rather than meds. You are a Godsend! oxox *

Sharon - Montana | December 8, 2014

This product has tremendously helped my 13 1/2 yr old poodle with her screeching cough. She was diagnosed with congestive heart failure and her enlarged heart irritated her trachea. When the vet put her on a narcotic cough medicine, she vomited for 3 days. SInce I already was using Hearty Heart, (which by the way has my little dog acting playful and happy again), I decided to return to your site to see if something could help her persistent cough. Thankfully, I found this respiratory aid/cough medicine to try. Your staff thought the respiratory aid would help her trachea irritation. She has been on this respiratory aid for 3 weeks and I see a huge improvement. We now all have peaceful nights of sleep without coughing spells! *

I have been giving my Pom Respaid for some time now. This product has definately helped stop her coughing. We had tried another natural product but that did not work for her and it was alot more expensive. We are really happy with this and it really helps her. *
