Kennel cough is very common amongst dogs that have been at the animal shelter, vet or in pet accommodation.
Unfortunately it’s not something that can really be avoided and in reality, although kennel cough can sound bad, it’s equivalent to the common cold for us. The best way to look after your pet with kennel cough is to give them rest and plenty of good food and water.
You may be given antibiotics by your vet to knock it over if your dog’s case is particularly severe. Check out our Kennel Cough profile for more information and our dog vaccination guide for information on preventing Kennel Cough.
