Vet-Formulated Remedies for Kennel Cough
Kennel cough, also known as infectious tracheobronchitis, is the result of inflammation in the upper airway.
This disease can spread very quickly when dogs are kept in close quarters, such as a kennel, dog show, or dog park. Typically, kennel cough is mild, and the cough subsides after five days. However, severe cases of the disease can last between 10 to 20 days.
Symptoms of Kennel Cough in Dogs
- Dry, harsh coughing that may sound like “honking.”
- Gagging and retching
Causes of Kennel Cough
- Bordetella bacterium

Risk Factors for Kennel Cough
Kennel cough can become problematic for some dogs including:
- Dogs with a weak immune system due to illness or old age which can then manifest into chronic bronchitis.
- Puppies that develop kennel cough can then progress into fatal bronchopneumonia.
- Stress and environmental changes including extreme temperatures along with humidity can make dogs more susceptible to this disease as well as the severity.
If secondary bacterial pneumonia occurs, that can complicate matters even more and can occur when dogs have illnesses such as bronchitis, a weak immune system, or collapsed trachea.
