Our dog buddy is fairly I'll with a caught he has next to he contact with other dogs especially strange dogs.
We have been up all night with him we thought he might have got sumthing struck in his thought
But no went to vat this morning harsh haking cough.
He did get a vacsen when he was a puppy for every thing.
But vetanary says it kenil cough no treatments apart from drink and love she says till thay know what viruses it is.
She says it should settle down in a few days
Results back in a few days from swabs taken
It was really worrying though we wer going to lose him

Fingers crossed Bill that Buddy gets the right treatment and is on the road to recovery, such a worry for you.

Hope he gets better soon. I didn’t add kennel cough to this year’s vaccinations but now wondering if I should have.

A spoonful of coconut oil or manuka honey every few hours can help ease the cough quite a bit.

I've found coconut oil to be the best, as it seems to leave a soothing coating on the throat for longer. Plus they love it. You can buy it in most supermarkets. Aldi do a reasonably priced jar of it.

Meg has kennel cough at present so both dogs confined to barracks.
She is having Meloxicam.(A NSAID , also used in humans but dog dose is tiny as they are very sensitive to it)
She is vaccinated against kennel cough but it is caused by a multitude of viruses so can still get it.
She is much better, cough has gone and Spice hasn't caught it.

He is a bit of a drama queen he cut his paw few weeks ago when we tell him off he raises his poorly paw and puts on a sad face

Exactly the same as my rufty tufty spaniel. Will deal with anything, until we show interest in his wound. Then out comes the drama. Latest cut.

My boy has also just got over kennel cough. The worst of the cough doesnt last long, and human cough medicine helps as it soothes the throat. A kids one is good, don’t use one that makes him drowsy.
